The Challenge

The SVUDL Legal Pipeline Challenge engages the legal community to make a difference for local youth whose talents go neglected in struggling schools. The week-long campaign raises funds and musters volunteers to expand a program proven to change life outcomes and launch legal careers.

The Impact

The Silicon Valley Urban Debate League channels the power of voice to engage at-risk youth in rigorous, evidence-based argument and competition. In schools where college-going rates dip below 40%, more than 95% of urban debaters graduate high school and over 90% of graduates go on to college. Over half (54%) graduate planning to pursue careers in law.

Thanks in large part to last year's Legal Pipeline Challenge, the first year of College and Career Success programming at SVUDL was a smashing success. The path from here depends heavily on this year’s Legal Pipeline Challenge campaign.

Six high-poverty high schools representing more than 5,000 students are currently on the SVUDL Wait List. Your part in this is crucial: through volunteer hours and donations, in a campaign full of fun, excitement, and recognition, your support helps reach hundreds of young people in need.
