Four Day Class

February 11-14, 2019

The Four Day Class is a dynamic, hands-on leadership experience where students learn about state government from a Christian worldview. Students gather at their local State Capitol to run for student office, participate in a mock legislature, and learn about how they can be effective leaders in their community back home. For students ages 13-19.

 

The Four Day Class will meet at the Arizona State Capitol Executive Tower, located directly west of the Capitol Museum. We will meet in the Executive Conference Room on the 3rd floor. Please plan to arrive by 12:30 p.m. on Monday. The TeenPact staff will greet you at the Welcome Table. All students should eat lunch prior to class on Monday.

Evening Sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis in class with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.

 

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director.

 

Monday and Tuesday

Please join us at Bethany Bible Church in the Activity Center. Evening Sessions will take place from class dismissal until 9:00 p.m. We will share a potluck dinner and are asking parents to bring a dish to share. Your entire family is welcome to join us.

 

Wednesday

Please join us for our Annual Pizza Party and Ultimate Frisbee Competition and fellowship time on the lawn in front of the Historic Arizona State Capitol! The cost is $5 per person and all family members may join us. The evening will include pizza, worship, and time to play frisbee from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please pick up your students at 6:00 p.m. in the parking lot by the memorials. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

Parents are invited to stay for as much of the class as possible. We love having parents observe what their students are learning! If you are not able to stay, you are welcome to drop off your student.

 

Please join us for graduation on Thursday, beginning at 1:00 p.m. We will hold graduation at the third floor conference room in the Executive Tower. During graduation, students participate in a short mock legislative session, hear speeches from the elected officials, hear a charge from the Program Director, receive graduation certificates, and much more!

 

Host homes may be available for out of town students. If you are in need of housing for the week, please contact State Coordinator, Laura Larson for more information. If you would like to bless another family by serving as a host home, please contact Laura Larson.
