The Seattle Urban Debate League (UDL) is a partnership between the Seattle Public Schools, the Alliance for Education, and the Seattle Debate Foundation (SDF). One of the main goals of the Seattle UDL is to make debate available to ALL students, regardless of their ability to afford debate or debate travel.
To accomplish this, the Seattle Debate Foundation recruits volunteers to serve as judges, coaches, mentors, and fundraisers.
Volunteers are the driving force behind the success of the Seattle UDL. Our strong group of volunteers create allow us to crate and sustain new debate teams at minimal cost to students and schools.
As the Seattle UDL expands with more schools and more students, the need for volunteers continues to grow. To address this need, the SDF invites all interested volunteers to a training workshop this November. There will be two identical training sessions offered, one on November 15th and the other on November 20th.
Volunteers can help in several ways, as team mentors, debate judges, tournament assistants, and school fundraisers. The training session is open to new and returning volunteers. Debate experience is not necessary to volunteer.
