We envision a world in which Chicago youth are empowered to find their voice, succeed in college and career, and become leaders in their community.
As a partner to Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Debates promotes, facilitates, and runs the Chicago Debate League (CDL), providing competitive debate programming in high schools and middle schools across Chicago, serving over 1400 students. The Chicago Debates also trains teachers to use debate tools and methodologies to improve the delivery of regular curricula. Debate provides low-income and minority Chicago students with a unique educational program that dramatically improves academic results and expands college and life opportunities.
