Your tax-deductible gift makes a real difference for Kansas City youth. Individual financial contributions are the backbone of the DEBATE-Kansas City, fueling tournaments and workshops for our young advocates, professional development for our teachers, and much more:
A $20 gift allows one student to participate in a Weeknight Debate Tournament. DKC rolls into dozen a Kansas City schools each year with pizza, trophies and evidence to host debate tournaments. We also recruit qualified judges and tabulate all the results. Students debate two rounds, share a meal and get pumped during the awards ceremony.
A $40 gift funds one Expert School Support Visit. DKC recruits and pays our best program graduates and area college debaters to visit debate classrooms and mentor our students. These visits expand student skills & confidence, support the work of our coaches and provide our students a mentor to model.
A $100 gift allows a school to bring 20 students to a Debate Recruitment Workshop. Our workshops help coaches recruit students. We have college debaters put on an interactive demonstration debates and then we use our creative powers to get every student debating by the end of the day.
A gift $200 enables a student to attend Summer Debate Camp. Each year DKC provides a free one-week debate camp to our students where they get a jump start on the upcoming season. Campers are given evidence packets, expert presentations, meals and even a camp tournament.
A gift of $500 funds a Youth Debater for an entire year, opening up an intellectual world for them, making it possible for them to practice, attend workshops, roll out to tournaments, and build strong voices through debate.
