Sign Up to Volunteer 

Join hundreds of your neighbors making a difference with students in your community. Volunteering for an urban debate league is a great way to make a large impact in a short amount of time. 

Coach Ng of Capital City and policy analyst Kency Nittler pause for a light-hearted moment while judging a debate at DC International in 2017

Every volunteer judge allows for 4 more students to participate, and the feedback you provide is crucial to their development. 

Support from volunteers like you led us to be recognized by the National Association of Urban Debate Leagues for our volunteer program (2015-16 and 2016-17), as Most Outstanding Urban Debate League in 2017-2018, and to be recognized as one of the best local non-profits by the Greater D.C. Catalog of Philanthropy (2018).

Your support allows us keep growing and serving more students and schools.
