SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAMS

Our Sunday morning programs are ideal for curious middle schoolers, grades 5th-8th. Our experienced instructors and mentors facilitate workshops to guide students through speech and debate. 

Students log-on to our Zoom link at 11:00 AM and participate until 1:00 PM. We introduce students to debate by hosting peer-based virtual workshops about monthly topics.

Our virtual Sunday morning programs are free for all students grades 4th to 9th thanks to the support of the Richmond Forum, SPEAK RVA, and our community mentors.

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! :)
