Debate Mate is a UK charity that employs university students to go into schools with high levels of child poverty to teach kids how to form arguments and express themselves. I worked for the charity for three years whilst I was at university in both Bristol and Nepal, and honestly, it was the most rewarding experience I’ve ever had. I’ve seen kids I’ve taught go on to do college, get incredible exam results, become confident and eloquent individuals and make amazing new friendships. These are often the same children who are branded “difficult” by the schooling system. It’s a job that is so fun, so fulfilling, that I’d do it for free (and the paycheck is pretty spectacular).
