As many of our readers know, the Boston Bar has an ongoing partnership with the Boston Debate League (BDL) to help teach Boston Public High School students critical thinking, persuasive writing and effective communication skills. Part of our partnership means finding volunteers generous enough to spend their time volunteering as judges and mentors for the urban debate teams. On behalf of the BBA and BDL, we thank our volunteers who donated their time during October and November to help close the achievement gap in Boston.
