Make JUNE 30th not just the last day of our fiscal year, but the first day of a young person’s journey of self discovery!

June 30th is the last day in our current fiscal year. Your support of BUDL today helps us to extend our reach this summer and give more students the opportunity to attend BUDL’s B’More Debate Camp for free!! By giving a gift to BUDL today you open a door of opportunity for our students and help BUDL to encourage and grow tomorrow’s changemakers! Help us end our year by celebrating our students and letting them know we believe in their promise. With the school system’s impending budget cuts, BUDL counts on support from friends like you to ensure that opportunities like debate don’t disappear when times are tough and students need us the most!

BUDL Exclusive: Interview with City Bloc

We learned through last month’s protests that debate skills play a role in real-life empowerment, but where do we go from here? Debaters and City Bloc founders Makayla Gilliam-Price and Joseph Gaylin have an idea. They lead us through the beginnings and the future of their organization for student activism in this BUDL Exclusive.

Are you ready to bring your love of debate to the public? BUDL is! We’re hitting the streets this summer to share our message and engage new people, young and old, in Urban Debate!

Calling All Debaters!
This is your chance to show the world just how amazing you are! We’ll be debating the public in issues big and small and we need your help. Email volunteers@budl.org today to reserve your spot on the BUDL Street Team at festivals and events this summer!
