Four Day Class

April 5-8, 2021

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.

 

Students should plan to meet at the Connecticut State Capitol by 12:45 p.m. on Monday. TeenPact Staff will greet you and show you to the classroom. Students and families should plan to eat lunch prior to arriving at the class.

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, Wednesday and Thursday, 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. Parents are invited as well. If interested, please purchase dinner for the week online at time of registration.

 

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. 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!
