About Us

The NLSDU is an organization dedicated to assisting, expanding and developing debate, public speaking, and youth parliament activities as means of education, as instrument of public policy and as activities for their own sake.

Comprised of former participants and alumni of these bodies as well as other friends and supporters in the wider community, members share the common interest of improving and promoting the future prospects of young Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.

If you would like to assist our activities or would like more information, please contact us!
