About Us

As aspiring high school debaters, we recognized the value of debate and the opportunities we were given with our high school programs. Through years of practice and countless hours of preperation, we are ranked among the top debaters in California.

We want to spread the skills we learned to new audiences and engage more young people in debate. We do this through free, high-quality workshops and coachings, accessible to people of all ages.
