About Rose Debate.

For ten years, Rose Debate has shared the world of speech and debate with elementary, middle, and high school students in Silicon Valley, Boston, and beyond. We are committed to growing our students in three important areas: 

CONFIDENCE. Public speaking is one of the most prevalent fears in the U.S. Our courses inspire students with the confidence they need to overcome this fear and succeed in any enterprise. 

COMMUNICATION. All of life’s endeavors rely on effective communication. We create an environment where students can grow as communicators with their peers.

LEADERSHIP. We train our students to make strong impressions, meaningful conversation, and speak persuasively — indispensable skills to the modern leader.
