International Summer Tournament Opportunities!

While APDA summer tournaments are a great way to stay in practice (and have fun) over the summer, many international students – who tend to be POC – often do not have access to these opportunities. Special thanks to Michelle Ng (Brown) & Harry Elliott (Stanford)!

Outreach Guide: Opportunities for Teaching Debate

Part of the founding mission of the APDA Diversity Initiative is to give back the debate experience to our respective communities, especially disenfranchised ones. We have compiled a comprehensive list of opportunities for teaching debate in low-income areas, predominantly minority areas, & correctional facilities near APDA member institutions, as well as other options to get involved.

The guide will be permanently available under our Resources page. Please reach out to any member of DI with questions or concerns about the guide, and feel free to leave suggestions or feedback!
