Through dynamic experiences, TeenPact seeks to inspire youth in their relationship with Christ and train them to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage the culture around them. “Changing lives to change the world” is more than a vision statement to us. It’s what we do every day.
At TeenPact, we believe students learn best by doing. That’s why our State Classes are comprised of focused hands-on leadership training. With classes offered across the nation and for students ages 8-19, young people will quickly discover how to embrace their call as the next generation of leaders through the unique tools, teaching, and opportunities TeenPact provides.
Our Alumni Events take students deeper in their relationship with Christ as they build lasting community and grow through intentional leadership training. While events activities range from meeting legislators on Capitol Hill to team building in South Dakota, the focus is the same – training students to be influential and servant-hearted leaders.
Experience a full-immersion week of law school at Liberty University School of Law. This event is designed to train you to understand the judicial process, practice case law, and develop excellent oral argumentation skills.
Pre-event study prepares you to jump into a one-of-a-kind intellectual experience wherein you benefit from Law School professors’ interactive lectures on topics including “Introduction to Legal Reasoning” and “Foundations of Law.” The special emphasis on appreciating the Judeo-Christian roots of our judicial system integrates biblical worldview into both study and conversation.
TeenPact Staff and Liberty Law School professors coach Students through the appellate process as they analyze facts and issues of a realistic case file and craft oral arguments.
The highlight of the week is undoubtedly the two-day Moot Court Tournament where Students argue their case against opposing counsel before a panel of judges.
Beyond these thrilling academic opportunities, Judicial Students enjoy all the distinctive elements of a TeenPact event. These include morning worship and devotionals, intentional small group time, afternoon free time, and evening sessions.
If you are looking to deepen your relationship with Christ and continue developing the skills of an effective servant leader, join us for TeenPact Judicial!

Want to experience TeenPact too? Here’s how you can join us.
TeenPact Judicial is a very simple event for Chaperones with an excellent environment for Chaperones to see their Students grow throughout the week. TeenPact Judicial takes place on campus at Liberty University, with much of the day spent in classrooms, or outdoors for free time. Chaperones at Judicial primarily serve at the dorms to assist with supervision in the evenings and the mornings. On occasion, there may be assistance with meals that is helpful for the Staff Team, but is not required. TeenPact Judicial is a great event to attend to learn with your Student during the lectures from professors, but still have flexibility to work remotely or accomplish other things as needed. Chaperones have historically enjoyed the Moot Court Tournament at the end of the week where they can watch their Students implement what they’ve learned throughout the week. At the conclusion of the event each year, TeenPact hosts an awards banquet for families of the Students to celebrate their accomplishments during the event. Chaperones are invited to attend the banquet as part of the event cost, and other family members are welcome to join for a small fee. If you’re interested in joining us as a Chaperone for TeenPact Judicial, just register using the link below, and we will look forward to having you with us!
A celebration to honor all of our outstanding students.
Parents, siblings, and other guests are invited to attend a banquet to honor the TeenPact Judicial Students at the end of the week. We will hear a class-nominated Student representative share about the experience at Judicial. Additionally, Professor Grant Rost of Liberty University School of Law will address the class and announce the winners of the moot court tournament that takes place during the week.
In light of program activities, Students will not be picked up following the banquet. Parents traveling to Lynchburg for the banquet should plan to make housing arrangements off-campus, unless previously registered as a Chaperone for the entirety of the event. If you have questions regarding the Banquet, please contact our National Office at [email protected].
