The New York City Urban Debate League Volunteers Committee

Our Mission

The NYC Urban Debate League is the largest urban debate league in the nation because of our incredible and inspirational volunteers. Nearly every weekend we host debate tournaments across the city and volunteers make everything possible. The Volunteers Committee (Volunteers4Debate) was founded to support our incredible volunteers and all our mission that every school should have a debate team and every student should have access to the best debate education opportunities.

Monthly Meetings

We meet each month most often on Saturdays at either Debate Tournaments (8:30am-9:30am) or the Office of the NYC Urban Debate League at 25 Broadway during Debate Center hours (11:00pm-12:00pm). Please subscribe to the newsletter to receive updates on meeting days and times.

Who We Are

The Parents Committee is open to all parents/guardians of students in the league, student alumni in the league, or if trying to bring debate to their school.  If you have any questions on joining, please contact Director Erik Fogel,
