VIRTUAL DEBATE 
LEAGUES

Our virtual debate leagues are free for all students aged 10+ and hosted completely online. 

With the support of The Richmond Forum, SPEAK RVA, and our community mentors, we are continuing our efforts to establish competitive virtual debate leagues. 

Our experienced instructors and community mentors help facilitate our workshops, guide students through lessons, judge practice rounds, and most importantly create a social and inclusive virtual community.

Our curriculum and mentors guide, motivate, and coach students to excel in speech & debate. We teach important skills such as:

Our program is hosted every Sunday, from 11 AM to 1 PM, via Zoom. Register below to access our meeting link.

OUR COMMUNITY

Our community of high school and middle school students create an environment of curious, vocal, and proactive thinkers. We motivate students to express and exchange ideas, while being challenged by our instructors. Our students will have the opportunity to: 

  • Prepare arguments with mentors and instructors

  • Participate in monitored debates with friends

  • Compete in tournaments with other students across the state

Our program is specifically tailored to create an environment that is familial where students become passionate about asking critical questions.

STUDENT FEEDBACK

They were awesome! I loved ALL of them. In my opinion, I think all 3 of them should keep working there. Their kind yet humorous comments made my day, and I loved their enhancing discussions that helped us learn more. Keep it up Anna, Varun, and Owen! :)
