For students ages 13-19.

 

Students should plan to arrive at the California State Capitol by 12:45 p.m. on Monday. The TeenPact staff will greet you and direct you to the Welcome Table.

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. Evening Sessions 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.  Parents and commuter students are invited to attend.

 

You can purchase dinner for our Evening Sessions online at time of registration, or bring your own dinner each night.

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.
