Giving back to the community
The Toronto Debating Society is an active member of the community and encourages outreach initiatives. Our outreach programs include exhibition debates, public speaking presentations, educational seminars and workshops.
Some of the groups that have participated in our programs include Toastmasters, JCI Toronto (a division of Junior Chamber International), The Tuesday Literary Club and the Ruskin Literary and Debating Society.
Recently, two of our members were guests on Radio Regent for a one-hour live show on debating that was broadcast to a global audience.
Our members are willing to volunteer their time in an effort to support free expression and critical thinking. If you belong to a group, school, or organization that would benefit from learning how to further develop these communication and reasoning skils, request a workshop. Our members will share their knowledge and experience to provide you with new techniques to enhance your speaking skills and explore new perspectives. We can all benefit from honing the tools necessary to express ourselves, as well as having the confidence to defend a position and question a belief.
