If you are passionate about helping people become confident communicators, we welcome your support and involvement.
Friends of The Practice Space
Join our special group of volunteers who share their time and insights to support our work! Our volunteers make it possible for youth to participate in speech and debate tournaments and for our nonprofit to be able to put on community events.
Volunteer to help with events as a greeter or help with set up, decor, and event activities.
Giving Back to Schools
Volunteer to judge at online and in-person speech and debate tournaments so that more students in under-resourced schools can participate in the activity – training is provided, no experience necessary!
Volunteer as a guest speaker or coach in our programs – experience required, including a background relevant to the type of public speaking program. Past advisors have included professional poets, debate coaches, university faculty, attorneys, and storytellers. We also look for new Board members to start in March of each year.
