MIDDLE SCHOOL LEAGUE

Our middle school speech and debate league is free for all students and hosted completely online

With the support of The Richmond Forum, SPEAK RVA, and over 25 high school volunteer mentors, we are launching Richmond's first ever Middle School Speech & Debate League. 

Invitation emails will be sent upon registering. 

OUR MENTORS

 

By connecting our group of high school volunteer mentors with curious middle schoolers in the area, we aim to cultivate a community of mentorship and competitiveness revolving around Speech & Debate. 

 

Our experienced high school mentors help facilitate our Sunday workshops, guide students through lessons, judge practice rounds, and most importantly mentor middle school students to success. 

High school mentors will gain volunteer hours for their commitment, and help train their future novice cohort. If you are a high school member of speech and debate interested in mentoring middle school minds, please register below.
