We have been running debates each month since 2016 and have been running debates on WhatsApp, and now we are on Zoom.
Learn the skills of public speaking and the rules of formal debating, in an informal environment. Debating increases critical thinking and improves study skills. Our members learn about respecting other people's opinions and learn more about social and political issues. E-CERTIFICATES are available (12 to collect).

There are practically no regular debating clubs for young people in London. Thankfully, as part of Brent Youth Debates we have an opportunity to debate, even during a pandemic. The leaders are great.

Healthwatch Brent has had the privilege of working with this organisation and has been able to gathers/understand the views of young people. This has contributed to developing approaches that are young people focussed., especially during the pandemic. The views from young people are refreshing and this forum has helped their voices reach people who can implement changes in their community - Project Officer Healthwatch Brent

Since I started participating, my debating skills and confidence in public speaking have improved so much. The group is very welcoming and kind so I found it very easy to fit in. Everyone is very supportive and helpful and always look to help each other improve. The topics discussed are also very interesting to talk about. I would definitely recommend joining to all young people

I absolutely loved attending this workshop - as it boosted my critical thinking perspective and confidence in public speaking! I have also seen an improvement within my essays - using the tips and tricks I have learnt from GLYF!!! I really liked the topics it covers as well, most favorite is the Christmas Edition Debate Workshop where I and several other had the opportunity to discuss whether 'Money can buy happiness" it was great hearing other perspectives too with several others. This debate was hugely impactful towards my studies and will be continuing to join in their debate workshops!
