Youth Summer 2021

Fremont Debate Academy is a 501(c)(3) certified nonprofit organization that is developing a competitive debate program in Edina, focusing on the Middle School Public Debate Format. Over the span of weekly meetings for 8 weeks, students will develop argumentation and research skills, helping them set a solid foundation for themselves in the future. Lectures, practice rounds, and a culminating tournament will all be included in the program. This program is led by Arya Mirza, a junior at Edina on the debate team, and will be run by her and multiple other high school debaters. Any questions about the program can be directed to Arya at arya@fremontdebateacademy.org

Fremont Debate Academy's mission is to develop a debate & civics program in every school and every district across the world. Over the past 5 years, with a team of 200+ volunteers/leaders, we have taught over 1600+ students and have programs scheduled in 12 states + 6 countries for this school year. We also have partnerships with institutions like Broward County & Teach For America and are training 100+ teachers. Learn more about FDA at fremontdebateacademy.org

Part of the proceeds from the program will also go toward scholarship funds for Edina High School debaters in need to be able to attend travel tournaments.
