Get Involved

“I always knew I was smart, and debate is the place I can show it.”
– Boston Debate League Debater


Getting involved with the Boston Debate League won’t just change a student’s life, it will change yours!

The Boston Debate League relies heavily on volunteers in order to provide the life-changing opportunities debate has to offer BPS middle and high school students. Volunteers fill vital roles throughout the year; including judging tournaments, mentoring students, college prep and general help with league operations. No prior debate experience or training is required, and virtually any level of commitment can be accommodated.

The Boston Debate League needs your help. Whether you’re able to make a donation, or volunteer as a judge, your contribution to urban debate will have a powerful effect on local students, schools, and our community.

Do you have other ideas about how you want to be involved? Contact us!  With your help, Boston’s young people will find their voices through debate.
