About the MNUDL

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University, located in the heart of Minneapolis, Minnesota. We provide academic competitive debate programming to Twin Cities-area middle and high school students.

The VISTA member will serve as a community liaison, promoting our programs more broadly throughout the Twin Cities area and establishing new relationships within universities, corporate affinity groups, area nonprofits, and more.

Note: Spanish or Somali speaking skills preferred, but not required.
