New York City Urban Debate League

Changing lives

“So, why debate?… What I find so amazing and so powerful is: I know of no technology, no force in our field of education which cause young people at this age to strive, to fight, based on words and evidence, but in doing so change themselves. There really isn’t much else like it.”

David Coleman (President and Chief Executive Officer of the College Board and a former New York City high school debater)
