We need debate judges all year round! If you’re interested in hearing about volunteer opportunities, please fill out this form.

Tournaments will take place in the Twin Cities Metro in Minnesota. While we have limited virtual volunteering opportunities during the high school debate season, our primary focus is on in-person competition. Please sign up at least one week in advance of your shift to allow processing of your background check.

Plus: Did you know that you don’t have to judge with us to make a difference? Check out these creative ways our volunteers impact our program! Reach out to if you’re interested in suggesting ways to share your skills with us.

Our volunteer work is supported by the AmeriCorps Volunteer Generation Fund. This grant makes it possible for us to offer you transportation via Uber or Lyft to our tournaments, if you have the need. Please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Johan Fullard-Tellez, at to let us know you need help.
