Debate Spaces' Mission
Debate Spaces is an education non-profit that empowers young people to advocate for themselves and their communities by cultivating critical thinking, empathy, and confidence through cross-cultural debate education.
We envision an interconnected world, where dialogue is driven by understanding instead of fear, and where communities find common ground while celebrating their differences. We believe that debate is an immensely valuable activity for youth, both in teaching them skills that they can apply to their daily lives and in inspiring them to think critically about issues affecting our society. By engaging in rigorous and meaningful discussion, students not only become more aware of current events but also shape their own responses to those events. By crafting and developing strategies to make the world a better place, the pedagogical approach of debate carries numerous external benefits.
