Volunteer as a Middle School Debate Judge!
The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University provides academic competitive debate to middle and high school students in the Twin Cities. We’re seeking volunteers for the spring season!
Middle school debate judging shifts are now open! No experience? No problem. We will train you. You just need to be able to pass a background check. Debate judges listen to students, provide feedback for them, and choose the winner. In the process, you’ll help students improve their public speaking, argumentation, and academic skills.
Please note that the timing for each shift is 3:30-7:00 PM CST and they are scheduled to be held in person in the Twin Cities Metro (location TBD).

Plus, stay tuned for our Spanish Debate League & East African Debate opportunities.
submitted by firstname.lastname@example.org
The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate programming to more than 1,200 Twin Cities students. We’re seeking remote volunteers for the 2023 Spring Semester!
Because many of the students we work with are English language learners, one of the most powerful tools we have to help rookie debaters learn is auditory supplements to our written packets. With these recordings, students at all skill levels will be able to follow along with the text as they read, learn evidence while doing other tasks like doing chores or riding the bus, and rapidly improve their literacy and information retention.
How You Can Help
We are seeking volunteers to record our evidence packets at a conversational pace (120 words per minute). Help us record evidence for the following programs:
• Middle School Policy Debate: Record nonfiction evidence about the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) written in English. Recordings needed by January 27th.
• Spanish Debate League: Record nonfiction evidence about Puerto Rico statehood written in Spanish. Spanish fluency is required. Recordings needed by February 17th.
• East African Debate: Record nonfiction evidence about a topic central to the East African Debate community in the Twin Cities (TBD), written in English. Recordings needed by March 1st.
• Financial Literacy Leadership Debates: Record nonfiction evidence regarding the advantages and disadvantages of banking at a large national institution versus a small, local credit union. Recordings needed by April 1st.
Volunteers need to be able to speak slowly, clearly, and with energy. No special recording equipment is required, although we do ask that you record in a quiet space with minimal distractions. We can edit your audio for you.

This research study (IRB #: 2022-32-03) is designed to compare two different skill-building training programs that may help college students develop adjustment-related skills. You are eligible to participate if you are a current Augsburg undergraduate student.
If you decide to participate, you will be asked to come to our Augsburg Psychology research laboratory for 4 sessions over the course of one month. The sessions include an initial orientation meeting and three sessions focused on one of two skills-building programs (you will be randomly assigned to one of the two–like a flip of a coin). Both programs involve mini-informational videos as well as experiential activities for you to complete. We will also have you complete a few personality measures. You will be assigned a peer coach who will work with you as progress through the study and guide you through the study components. Each of the sessions will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Finally, we will check in one last time 3-months after the study is over for a brief online survey.
Participants will receive up to $35 for their participation. $5 for each of the first three sessions, and $10 for both the fourth session and the 3 month follow-up. Alternatively, Augsburg University Psychology students will receive up to $25 and 4 research credits.
To participate, please complete this participant inquiry form: https://tinyurl.com/Skill-Building
The researchers conducting this study are part of the Identity and Well-being Research Lab at Augsburg University (iwellLab@augsburg.edu or 612-656-6560), directed by Dr. Alex Ajayi, Assistant Professor of Psychology (E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 612-330-1146). If you have questions or concerns, you may contact us via the emails and phone numbers specified above.
Please consider forwarding this to other individuals who may meet the criteria for participation. Thank you for your consideration!
