PFYD has partnered with the After School Activities Partnership. ASAP’s mission is to provide after school recreational and enrichment activities to Philadelphia students. ASAP and PFYD have partnered with the sole goal of creating a Philadelphia-wide debate league that is open to all Philadelphia schools. During the fall, ASAP runs weekly after school debates for students in high school, while PFYD staffs some of the schools with volunteers, and runs weekend tournaments.
The results of our partnership were overwhelming; highlights included enormously increased participation at all tournaments. We look forward to continuing this partnership and working towards the creation of a Philadelphia-wide league.
