About Us 2

Since 2017

Origin Story

NextGen Debate began as a community with just four middle schools. We provide this opportunity free and rely on people like you to keep our program running. Without the time, money, and love given by our board and volunteers NextGen Debate would not be possible. Both middle and high schools are now enrolled and span across several school districts in the Coachella Valley.
