Programs: The BDL offers both in-school and after-school programming.

Mission:
The Boston Debate League's mission is to measurably improve students’ academic achievement and their expectations of themselves by engaging as many BPS high school and middle school students as possible through academic debate.
Results:
At the conclusion of the 2011-2012 school year, over 600 BPS students had participated in our after-school programs, and we had trained over 300 BPS teachers to incorporate debate techniques into their classroom structure.
