College Partnership Program

COLLEGE DEBATE PROGRAMS & THE ASSOCIATED LEADERS OF URBAN DEBATE
ALOUD partners represent the programming gamut from middle school to college. All of their efforts are geared towards helping students discover their voice, break out of the cycle of poverty and make positive contributions to society. This chain of involvement provides the potential for more effective tracking of student development and cross-channel communication so that students needs are considered at all levels of the educational process. In many cities, universities have been key partners in establishing debate and youth expression programs.
ALOUD works with colleges to design an integrated marketing strategy that addresses their objectives by providing them many benefits, including positive public relations and increased goodwill, brand loyalty, and a company investment in transformative educational opportunities for talented students. A corporate partnership with ALOUD is a unique philanthropic opportunity, offering the chance to support a dynamic network of teachers, students, parents and volunteers working to transform urban education and foster the next generation of America’s workforce.
HOW WILL PARTNERSHIPS HELP ACHIEVE YOUR EDUCATIONAL MISSION?
Today's students are savvy and motivated by social justice work. The most successful universities are taking steps to connect with their communities through social enterprises, teacher training programs, fellowships & internships and donation of in-kind resources from faculty expertise to use of technology. Many colleges and universities you know are ALREADY aware of the advantages. These institutions of learning have supported successful debate work by ALOUD partners in cities across the country.
Take the first step to becoming an ALOUD partner. As a youth-serving non-profit organization, effective collaborations with colleges and universities is vital to our success. In-kind services from colleges bridge the gap between earned income and operating costs allowing ALOUD and its partners to maintain and improve its programs and services for kids.
