The time is here: this week marks the BAUDL’s Third Annual Summer Institute @ Westlake Middle School (2629 Harrison Street in Oakland). From 9AM to 3PM on August 9 – 13, youth from across the Bay, regardless of whether they have debated are not, are welcome to attend this series of workshops, activities, and the summer debate tournament on the final day of the Institute! Registration is not required — come as you are, and bring friends and family! If you are new to debate, you have much to look forward to. We will show you the power of debate and how your individual voice can be heard on some of the most important issues of the day. If you are a veteran debater, the week will be a space to perfect your skills and will serve as an introduction to an incredible new topic on military power.
Our award-winning staff has worked hard to prepare you for our third season. Much is awaiting you on August 9 – 13 at Westlake Middle School (2629 Harrison Street): the institute is a great chance to meet young people from San Francisco and Oakland, to learn more about the world and how can make an impact on it, and to build your personal powers of argument and persuasion. No experience, no registration form, no reservations required.
