WHO WE ARE

Penn For Youth Debate is an organization dedicated to coaching debate in Philadelphia high schools. Our volunteers travel to high schools weekly to help students improve their critical thinking and argumentation skills. We work closely with Philadelphia’s After School Activities Partnerships to host debates at the University of Pennsylvania, including the Liberty Bell Classic. 

GET INVOLVED

If your high school is interested in working with us, wants to register for tournaments, or wants to learn more, please contact us! Penn students who are interested in volunteering should also reach out. Email us at pfyd@pfyd.org
