Junior Achievement Leadership Debate Series 2017

Junior Achievement of Trinidad & Tobago is excited to announce the motions for the 2018 JA Leadership Debate Series.

This year's topic of debate is: Social media experiences promote shallow comments over deep conversations, posts over discussion, broadcasting over engagement and loneliness over connectiveness.”
