Our Schools

The WUDL is an official partner of both D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) and Prince George's County Public Schools (PGCPS), and more than a dozen charter networks. Therefore, any D.C. and P.G schools will find partnering with the WUDL easy, free, and fully sanctioned. 


Schools identify a teacher to serve as the primary coach of the debate team and recruit students. The teacher receives a stipend, plus all of the training, evidence, curriculum, and expert assistance you need to be successful. We offer monthly training sessions during our tournaments so coaches can improve their skills.
