Volunteer Role:

Volunteers will serve as judges for our debate tournaments. No previous experience required. The first hour of the day is a training session where volunteers learn how to run the round and fill out ballots. Volunteers will be assigned to rounds where they will watch debaters compete, give some verbal feedback/encouragement, then submit the round results to the tournament staff. Volunteers should expect to judge anywhere from 1-4 rounds throughout the course of their time with us.

Organization:
The NYC Urban Debate League creates equitable access to academic debate opportunities with a focus on students of color and students from other historically underserved communities in New York City to empower the next generation of diverse, informed, and courageous leaders.

About NEW YORK CITY URBAN DEBATE LEAGUE INC

Location:

25 BROADWAY 12TH FLOOR, NEW YORK, NY 10004, US

Mission Statement

We aim to provide the highest-quality debate opportunities that develop young adults into informed, engaged and courageous citizens. Every school and every student should have access to the best debate education opportunities.

Description

In 2011, there were less than ten schools in New York City with debate teams. We were founded to change this statistic. Today, over 2000 students and 140 schools participate in monthly debates. Every day we support debate practices. Every week we offer Saturday workshops. Every weekend our debaters travel to local, regional, and national tournaments. Every month we host public debate nights. Every summer we host debate camps from the first day of summer to the last day of summer.

Over 90% of our high school seniors graduate and are accepted to college each year. Many of our graduates also receive full or partial scholarships to the college of their choice because of their participation in debate.

We were honored by the White House as one of the nation’s top after school programs.
