The IMPACT Coalition is looking for outstanding individuals who know how to 
get things done to join our team.  Millions of young people grow up without a 
thirst for learning.  Failing schools, crumbling communities and a lack of 
public commitment create the perfect storm for today's young people to abandon 
hope.    Even the select few who find a positive situation are often ripped from 
that situation due to changes in family circumstances.    IMPACT works to 
restore that thirst for learning by sharing the power of debate and promoting its 
use in classrooms, communities, prisons and places of worship so that young 
people rediscover their voices and can regain hope.  

The Improving Mentor Practices and Communication Techniques (IMPACT) 
Coalition is a mentoring and educational development organization that expands 
opportunities for urban students, schools and organizational partners by providing 
debate training, literacy assistance, curricula, and mentoring services to 
develop informed, concerned citizens. IMPACT advocates debate as a key to success 
in building healthier communities and tomorrow's leaders.   Visit our website 
at www.impactcoalition.org for more information.  IMPACT also serves as host to 
the Associated Leaders of Urban Debate (ALOUD) who partners with debate 
communities nationwide in twenty cities and directs a national partnership of 
twenty cities to promote debate.  

All public policy change begins with the power of a single individual to 
persuade another that they have a good idea.   Help inspire young minds to become 
active change agents through the power of debate.
