Client Spotlight

The Boston Debate League was created in 2005 to help improve students’ academic achievement. The league offers a host of after-school, weekend, and summer programs to help Boston students become advocates and intellectuals. Competitive academic debate offers a powerful means of engaging students in their own education and reversing negative trends.  Debaters come from across the academic spectrum, including those who do not attend school regularly or are not thriving in the traditional classroom.  The Rev. Dr. Gregory Groover, chair of the Boston School Committee, was this year’s Taking Sides for Success honoree. The event raised over $100,000 from the community to support local debate programs.  The league’s 2012-2013 debate season began on October 19.  Click here to view a complete tournament calendar.
