SYNERGIES — WORKING WITH ADULTS AND YOUTH
Some things have changed considerably since the photo on the left was taken on December 24, 1945. In any event, Statesman Debate enjoys tremendous synergies on account of conducting programs for both youth and adults. Where public affairs are concerned, the national approach to solutions is heavily conditioned by what was (or is) learnt in school and what we learn in the news or from other major sources such as think tanks. Because Statesman Debate pays close attention to information conveyed in school, it can better address ways to enhance adult critical thinking and because it follows the information that is typically presented to the general public, it can also better instruct the young, anticipating what they will encounter as adults.
