The SVUDL model is designed to channel the incredible power of youth voice, uniting adults and young people in a campaign to make smart cool on every campus we serve. Three mutually reinforcing programs accomplish these goals:
Competitive Debate taps the joy of expression and the excitement of tournament competition, inspiring youth to practice hard and make previously unimaginable progress.
Leadership Development trains youth to lead teams, schools, and communities – and supports each debater in graduating from high school and college.
Curriculum Innovation works with teachers and administrators to create classrooms and schools that channel the power of student voice to make smart cool.
