White House - Obama

Resources  /  White House - Obama

We give urban debaters unique opportunities to interact with leaders in government and industry.

In August 2013, we arranged for eight urban debaters to meet with President Obama in the Oval Office. On this same trip, the group also met with the Secretaries of Commerce, Treasury and Education and Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan. These meetings send a powerful message to all our debaters that their work is important and that, with hard work, they can succeed.
