Please meet in the Illinois State Museum Auditorium by 12:45 p.m. on Monday. Please do not bring any luggage with you into the classroom. The TeenPact Staff will greet you at 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 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.

 

Evening sessions are held from 4:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Southern View Chapel. The church is a short distance from the Country Inn and Suites and will be the location for all class activities. Dinner will be served for those Students (and families) who purchase dinners at time of registration for just $25 Monday through Wednesday, or $30 Monday through Thursday.

 

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!
