Leadership Program

Art of Advocacy Workshop

Help students form critical opinions while introducing them to the core issues behind current Supreme Court cases. Designed to comply with Common Core standards, this 60-90 minute workshop introduces students to the art of advocacy by providing them with the tools and information they need to develop and support their opinions. After learning about advocacy from Paul Hayes, the Director of Debate at George Washington University, students will face an audience as they support their views on topics such as energy production and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
