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. Our mission is to empower debaters to become engaged learners, critical thinkers, and active global citizens who are effective advocates for themselves and their communities.
The Community Debate Liaison Role
Our VISTA role is designed to build capacity for our fast-growing Spanish Debate League and East African Debate programs. In these programs, education leaders in the Latine and East African communities took the historic debate model and adapted it to suit their community’s needs.
To increase our capacity for meeting these programs’ needs, we must establish more community relationships to increase the qualified judging pool and promote community awareness. 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.
AmeriCorps VISTAs receive training, a choice of an education award or end of service stipend, an education award upon successful completion of service, health coverage, relocation allowance, childcare assistance if eligible, living allowance, and a stipend. The Community Debate Liaison will be a member of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits VISTA cohort.
