Social Impact Programmes
Debate Mate is committed to ensuring that the skills we teach are available to everyone, everywhere.
Debate Mate is a global social business that teaches crucial human skills from the classroom to the boardroom.
We empower professionals from all backgrounds with the skills to succeed in the workplace of today and tomorrow.
We power social change by engaging thousands of students and people from under-represented communities across the world through a series of educational programmes.
What We Do
Not for Profit
We power Debate Mate Schools which aims to tackle educational disadvantages in some of Britain’s most deprived communities.
Impact Training & Events
We provide training, consultancy, and events for charities, social businesses, and NGOs at zero or significantly reduced fees.
We connect young people with our partners to provide work experience opportunities across a range of professions and industries.
Boardroom to Classroom
We create innovative programmes which bring our partners together with our young people and other beneficiaries.
Social Impact Meets Mutual Skills Sharing
Our award-winning Boardroom to Classroom programme brings together professionals and young people in an authentic, impactful, mutually beneficial way.
It is a unique way for professionals to develop their own communication and leadership skills, while paying this forward by engaging with and empowering the next generation.
The best way to learn is to teach. We offer professionals the opportunity to take their Debate Mate learning and pass it on to others.
ESG & CSR
Real World Impact
Boardroom to Classroom works for everyone, everywhere – and also offers the opportunity for professionals in one country to interact with students from another.
People learn best and develop the most when they enjoy themselves. Boardroom to Classroom balances serious intention and impact with fun.
