Fuse is our youth debate team initiative that challenges youth of today to foster healthy debate of issues through words not through violence. Each Fuse debate team is made up of both males and females. The Fuse debate team derives from a mixture of mentoring, how to dialogue, political knowledge, social knowledge, and educational knowledge. In addition, Fuse host fundraisers and sponsors an Annual Scholarship Banquet held in May of each year to raise funds for its debate competition and its scholarship program.
The Order shall form partnerships with other organizations within the area such as: School Systems, Churches, Tents, Fraternal Organizations, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), City Council, County Council, American Legion, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Businesses, and other Community Organizations. The donation of non-perishable goods, food, and monetary offerings establish and recognizes organizations.
Fuse is overseen by the Order Education Committee. The Fuse Program Chairman shall always be chaired by a member of the Order with a Co-Chairman who is not part of the Order. This would foster a partnership with our Order and the communities we serve. The committee itself shall be a mixture of members from the Order and other leaders within the given areas. This program can only be active in areas where there is an Odd Fellows Lodge or Household of Ruth.
