Volunteers earn a special place in our community and our hearts. NextGen Debate would not exist without compassion and time given by volunteers.
At times committees are formed to help strengthen our debate community. Members of this committee will be manually approved.
Frequently asked questions
It is important that we have adequate information such as emergency contacts, health concerns, and more so that we can help keep everyone safe at our events. Legal affidavits are agreed to during the registration process and we intend to better our program by tracking every debaters progress.
There is no debate when it comes to health and safety. Our first few events will be held virtually until we can meet recommended guidelines. Click here to learn more
We offer an affordable debate program while providing free membership to anyone that needs it. If you feel you need a refund for any reason we are happy to oblige.
Of course! We ask that everyone in attendance act and dress respectfully. Check out the event schedule and arrive on time, audience members may not be allowed in once the debate starts.
There are lots of ways to volunteer. We need help setting up our events, selling snacks, scoring tournament data, running to the store, and at the end of the day we pack it all up again. Just reach out to us and let us know what you might be interested in.
