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.
Thank you for your interest in applying to staff with TeenPact during the 2023 season. Before you begin the application process, please make sure that you understand and meet all of the roles and requirements of our field staff (See Staff With Us page).
To complete the application process, each of the following steps must be taken, both for first-time applicants as well as returning staffers. It will be your responsibility as applicants to ensure that each step is completed in its entirety. All portions of the application process must be completed by June 30, 2022. Applicants will be notified of our decision by August 15, 2022 via the U.S. Postal Service.
1. Fill out an Application
This is the first step of the process. Only those who have filled out the online application will be included in applicant communication and updates.
After submitting their online application, all applicants who have not staffed previously must request three letters of reference from the Program Director and two Interns from their State Class. The Interns and Program Director will evaluate the applicant based upon their time at the Four Day Class and then send their letters directly to our office to be included in the applicant’s file. Once an applicant has requested a letter, there is no need to follow up with the Interns or Program Director.
Those who have staffed previously with TeenPact do not need to request letters of reference.
Below are email addresses for each of the 2022 Program Directors and Interns:
Once you have completed the online application form, we will work with you to set up a 15 minute interview to occur over the phone. Interview scheduling will open up later this season. All staff interviews will take place over the phone or onsite at National Convention with a member of our interview team. If you have already staffed one or more Classes, you do not need to interview again.
Heart of Staffing
Applying to staff is no small thing. We so appreciate the step of faith that you are taking along with your desire to serve in this ministry. As you work on these application steps, please do so prayerfully. Staffing provides an awesome leadership opportunity and a time of immense growth. However, the primary purpose of staffing is to serve. The process is very competitive – we are only able to accept around half of those who apply. Because of this, many who apply will not be invited to staff with us in 2023. Understand that declinations are by no means an indictment on one’s leadership abilities, relationship with the Lord, or ability to teach. Rather, if a declination is the outcome, we believe that God simply has a different plan for your life next season. We rejoice with you in whatever that may be!
