SVUDL helps low-income youth tap the power of their voices to compete, excel, and change the world.
The 50 Fund’s Playmakers program recognizes the herculean efforts of community-based Bay Area nonprofits and the people who make those impacts possible. SVUDL is honored to be selected as Super Bowl Host Committee's 26th Playmaker!
SVUDL offers more than an afterschool program; our impact stems from a deep school partnership model proven to change outcomes for underserved youth. With training and support, members of the debate team become leaders on their campuses, helping to shift expectations of what low-income youth can achieve. This research-based program model makes SVUDL one of the most cost-effective ways to impact young lives.
