Each year the POI Debate Institute puts together an incredible instructional team to provide best-in-class parliamentary debate instruction. We're looking for dedicated debaters and educators to join our Summer 2019 staff in a variety of positions, from judges to full-time instructors. To get started, please first fill out the form below!

Once you’ve completed the application, you should do the following:

  • If you’re still in high school or have no formal coaching experience, please ask a debate coach or advisor to write you a recommendation.

  • This recommendation should be no longer than 500 words, and should address your capability and potential as an instructor, interactions with students/younger debaters, and any other relevant details.
