Four Day Class

February 1-4, 2021 February 8-11, 2021 February 15-18, 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.

 

Please plan to arrive the Georgia State Capitol rotunda by 11:30 a.m. From there, TeenPact Staff will greet you and direct you to the Welcome Table. All Students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our Dress Code before attending the class.

Following graduation on Thursday, we will gather at Camp Fortson from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and would love to have your family join us for the festivities. This is a wonderful opportunity for TeenPact families to get to know each other. More details will be in the pre-class email you’ll receive approximately three weeks before class begins.

 

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.

Are you looking for an opportunity to invest in the next generation and make some great new friends along the way? Join us as a Chaperone for TeenPact Leadership Schools! You are invited to assist us with carrying out our goal of raising gospel-centered leaders. As a Chaperone, you have many responsibilities, including staying in the room with a group of Students, assisting with Student transportation each day, and having the opportunity to observe or participate in aspects of the class, including Prayer Walks, TeenPact Legislature, and Evening Sessions. You may be asked to assist with preparing and distributing meals and snacks during lunch and Coffeehouse. You are also welcome to join the Students for Rendezvous or have a Separate Chaperone Rendezvous, which is an amazing time to pour into the Students spiritually and be blessed yourself. You will be surprised by how much you personally receive through this week of service. Because you will be on site, you will be able to have the full TeenPact experience alongside your Student, seeing first-hand how God uses the ministry to change lives. 

 

If you would like to join us, we would love you to register. As with many ministry opportunities there is a cost to serve. TeenPact invites parents to serve as Chaperones for $140 for three nights or $180 for four nights. This registration fee covers your housing and meals for the week.
