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. These programs have proven popular and successful, and demand is growing quickly. 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.
