The government doesn’t just impact grown adults. It impacts the whole family—teens and children alike. TeenPact believes in the capacity of young people, and this extends even to preteens. We believe that young people (no matter their age) should be given the opportunity to learn, understand and have a voice in their government.
TeenPact’s One Day State Class for 8-12 year olds gives young people the tools and training to do just that—get involved to make a difference!
The One Day Class takes elements from our week-long government class for teenagers and condenses them into one action-packed, exciting day for elementary students. They will become Senators in a mock legislature where they discuss bills that they have written themselves, pray for their leaders during a prayer walk, watch a skit about the legislative process, and discover their capitol building by going on a scavenger hunt! These and many more hands-on, on-site activities will help students understand their state government as well as the role of Christians in politics.
Taught by a caring staff team, this class is designed for parents and children to attend together, with no extra charge for the parent. The enthusiastic and encouraging atmosphere will make this a class that you won’t soon forget!
What is the cost for the One Day Class?
Student tuition is $40 for the first child and $35 for each sibling. Check here for discounts!
