Welcome to Ignite Chicago Speech & Debate Club!
We are a Christian speech and debate club formed to serve homeschooled students in DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, Will and surrounding counties. Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered club that balances instruction, competition, formation and socialization.
We support the mission of the National Christian Forensics and Communication Association (NCFCA) which is to promote excellence in communications through competitive opportunities where homeschool students develop the skills necessary to think critically and communicate effectively in order to address life issues from a biblical worldview in a manner that glorifies God.
The club meets at Grace Church of DuPage (27W344 Galusha Ave, Warrenville, IL 60555) on Mondays. Extemporaneous speaking meets between 4:15-5:00; speech meets between 5:00-6:30; brown bag dinner at 6:30 followed by prayer and announcements; students not participating in the dinner are asked not to leave the building before debate; debate meets between 7:15-9:15. Meetings will begin promptly; please plan to arrive a few minutes early to get settled.
