Please contact us at , houston@urbandebate.org to share your interest in supporting our valuable work by volunteering to judge, mentor, etc… Please visit our judging/mentoring sites for more information.

Before you can begin volunteering with HUDL it is required by HISD that all volunteers complete VIPS training (Volunteers in Public Schools). In addition to your registration, a copy of a valid photo ID is required so that a confidential background check can be done by HISD. This confidential background check is to ensure the safety of our students, and should take 5 business days to process.
