So...What is This Anyway?

Debate it Forward makes learning fun (even remote learning!)  by bringing small groups of kids together to play debate-based games. 

Led by enthusiastic college students (think cool camp counselors), your child will meet new friends, test new ideas, and learn how to share thoughts in a challenging, yet safe and positive, atmosphere.


...And Why Does it Matter?

Parents and kids are tired of remote everything, so focusing on fun really matters right now. But if it has to be screen time, you want more than video games and social media…right? 

We understand. That’s why we employ ‘Engaged Learning’ strategies to activate your child’s curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking. And this matters, because debate teaches lifelong skills your kiddo will need in school and life.
