YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COUNCIL

YPC.jpg

The HUDL Young Professionals Council (YPC) offers young professionals the opportunity to give back to the community through rewarding and engaging volunteer activities, while expanding their networks to include an accomplished group of legal and business professionals in the Houston community. The YPC supports HUDL’s mission of advancing debate in Houston-area schools by raising scholarship money for HUDL students and recruiting volunteers for HUDL events. The group hosts several social events throughout the year, including its annual spring silent auction and fall cornhole tournament. Its members also regularly volunteer to mentor students, judge debate tournaments, and speak at HUDL events such as the Summer Debate Institute.

 

Want to get involved?

To learn more about the YPC, contact one of its co-chairs, Steven Messer or Erin McNamara. For more information about serving as a volunteer judge at a HUDL debate tournament, contact Jordan Warshauer at HUDL.volunteer.judges@gmail.com.
