My own conclusion is simple. Debate is the best kind of charity, worthy of all support, whether from presidents or regular dads. Fund it, watch it, judge it, give your kids to it: debate is America’s forgotten sport. – — Amity Shlaes chairs the jury of the Hayek Prize and the board of the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation, July 2, 2014, “How to Bring Your Zombie Child to Life: High School Debate Deserves More of a Chance,” http://m.nationalreview.com/article/381750/how-bring-your-zombie-child-life-amity-shlaes/page/0/1
Donate to the New York City Urban Debate League!
Our mission is that every school in New York City should have a debate team and every NYC student should have access to the best debate education opportunities. In 2011 there were less than 10 schools in NYC with competitive debate teams. We were founded to change this. Today, there are over 100 schools with debate teams and over 1000 NYC students participate in debate each year. These accomplishments are all because of volunteers and donors like you. So please consider supporting NYC youth by donating to the New York City Urban Debate League so we can start debate teams at more schools. Thank you.
