Come See How Chicago Debates

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Members & guests–free. To register, please scroll down or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Chicago Debates is the not-for-profit organization that runs debating leagues for Chicago Public High Schools and Middle Schools. They will explain how this particular academic activity (i.e., organized debating) transforms students from disadvantaged inner city schools, developing their academic and adult skills. Several recent graduates of the system will conduct a demo debate; they will also describe their experience in CPS schools and how debate changed the direction of their lives. Afterwards, the presenters will be available to mingle with attendees and expand on their personal insights over a self-hosted lunch. Come and learn about the skills and dreams of Chicago Public School student debaters. This program is organized by the Village Men’s Group. This month’s event is open to both women and men of the Village and their guests.


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
