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.
Join us at the manliest Alumni event we offer–TeenPact Venture! Enjoy the all-inclusive campus of Fort Bluff, the panoramic mountain views, rustic beauty of the lodge, flag-football, incredible sessions, and Christ-centered brotherhood. Participate in the night games, grow as a team, ask tough questions, and seek the scriptures for the truth of Biblical masculinity.
With Biblical masculinity under attack in today’s culture, TeenPact Venture is a week for guys to explore what it takes to be a man of character in a society plagued with mediocrity. Introduced for the first time in 2011, the event seeks to train young men to be unshakable leaders characterized by their integrity and wisdom.
TeenPact Venture gives young men direct training to equip them to be skilled leaders in a world searching for wise men of character. During the week students have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills such as financial management, interviewing, cooking and grilling, fitness, automotive and home maintenance, public speaking, fashion, social etiquette and more.
In addition to training their minds, students also test their physical limits and teamwork through sports, obstacle courses and other team-building activities. They learn how to take care of their bodies as they are challenged to develop discipline in their daily lives. The climax of the week is the championship game of flag football on the last night. The tournament is played throughout the week and crescendos with the final game under the bright lights of an official football field.
But most importantly, TeenPact Venture provides young men with the opportunity to grow spiritually. Through daily worship, devotions and discipleship, students are challenged to rise above societal standards of masculinity to be men of faith, purity and action. They study the scriptures to see what God has to say about masculinity and wisdom while developing accountability with their peers.
Led by an all-star team, composed of our 2020 Intern Guys, Venture provides young men with a platform for pursuing excellence as they seek to impact their world for Christ.
