Mission Statement

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.

Description

As a partner to Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Debate Commission (CDC) promotes, facilitates, and runs the Chicago Debate League (CDL), providing competitive debate programming in 78 high schools and middle schools in Chicago, serving over 1400 students. The CDC 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.
