Junior debating clubs are organised in cooperation with secondary schools and the Slovak debating association. They focus on the secondary school students who are concerned with foreign-political affairs and international politics. Model of the junior debating societies is adjusted to the needs of these students. That is to say, students involved in the academic debate shape their views on foreign-political questions and expand their knowledge and awarness of the current issues of public life. At the same time, students master their critical thinking and their ability to present and argue. Junior debating clubs work in Bratislava, Prešov, Sučany, Košice, Bardejov, Sabinov, Levoča, Zvolen, Kežmarok, Spišská Stará Ves, Stará Ľubovňa, Čadca, Liptovský Mikuláš, Poprad and Trnava.
