"The Power of Public Speaking, Debate, & Leadership"

Our Mission

Helping Children Become Better Thinkers, Speakers, & Leaders

Our Purpose

The American Debate League offers a comprehensive program that offers Public Speaking, Debate, and Leadership skills to children from 3rd-12th grades.

Our program serves to develop their own voice through both oral and written communication. We facilitate this by enhancing and developing children’s public speaking, literacy, creative and persuasive writing skills. It also helps to develop confidence, mutual understanding, and respect for all people and for the diversity of ideas. These skills also encourage children to develop leadership skills. The power of public speaking, debate and leadership is a lifelong skill and will serve our children well in any endeavor they choose to pursue as adults.
