Penn for Youth Debate (PFYD) focuses on providing Philadelphia middle and high school students with the opportunity to participate in Public Forum debate. Research has proven that debate can do wonders for students by increasing their literacy, public speaking, and critical thinking skills. By providing volunteer debate coaches to schools, and hosting debate tournaments, PFYD is committed to bringing these benefits to every student in Philadelphia!
