Macquarie's Great Debaters!
A team for The New York City Urban Debate League
A Macquaire Event to help the The New York City Urban Debate League raise funds for underprivileged children within the five boroughs .
Macquarie has partnered with the New York City Urban Debate league as part of Macquarie’s Foundation week to raise funds for underprivileged children within the five boroughs.
On Thursday October 22, 2015 the Risk Management Group of Macquarie NY invites middle school students selected by the NYC Urban Debate League to compete in a Risk oriented debate tournament.
The New York City Urban Debate League is the only non-profit organization that improves the literacy and communication skills, college preparedness, and civic engagement of NYC public school students through the transformational power of organized debate. Recognized for successfully serving the City’s most underrepresented communities, the NYCUDL establishes nationally competitive debate programs in low income schools to make a substantial year-after-year impact on the communication skills, academic performance, and college readiness of underrepresented students. Outside of their work in schools, the NYCUDL hosts debate classes and tournaments open to students from all areas and backgrounds, giving everyone the opportunity to become a champion in debate, academics, and life.
This school year over 30 new schools have signed up for the debate league. Your donation today will help in building debate programs at each of these schools.
