Four Day Class

March 19-22, 2018 March 18-21, 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 in the Archives Building. A TeenPact staff member will meet you at the Father Damien statue on the Beretania side of the Hawaii State Capitol Building at 11:30 a.m. on Monday to escort you to the classroom. Check-in is at 11:45 a.m. with class starting at 12:00 p.m. and ending at 4:00 p.m. You may pick up your student at the Father Damien statue at the end of the day. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

 

parking

Parking around the Capitol can be very difficult and expensive; be sure to give yourself enough time. There is a metered lot under the capitol building itself accessible via Punchbowl Street. Another metered lot by the Department of Health Building located on the corner of Punchbowl and Beretania. There are numerous pay lots that charge a daily flat rate, along with metered street parking. Limited spaces are also available at Iolani Palace. Carpooling is encouraged.

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 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.

 

The Evening Sessions will begin immediately after class. Students should bring a change of clothes for playing Ultimate frisbee at a nearby park. We will then transport students to Hawaii Baptist Academy Middle School for the session and will conclude at 7:00 p.m. Families are welcome to join us at the Evening Sessions. We look forward to seeing you there!
