We are pleased to present to our Philologian community our partnership with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate League (LAMDL), a non-profit organization that promotes access to the life-changing activity of competitive debate for low-income students of color in LA’s most under-served public schools. A wealth of evidence demonstrates that their initiative changes the lives of the students who participate, and boosts their academic achievement in high school and beyond. In essence, the LAMDL creates access by teaching public speaking and creates competitive opportunities for students to be encouraged to reach their highest academic potential.
Our program consists in a partnership between Philologos and LAMDL in order to enable our Philologians to volunteer and gain valuable experience in judging debates by evaluating arguments in the most equitable and objective way possible at the monthly debate tournaments held by the Debate League. With only a few hours of your schedule , a unique oasis of learning, and a well-needed dose of fun, this is an experience worth being lived!
If you are interested in joining our program, let us know and we will sign you up!
