Four Day Class

March 23-26, 2020

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 lodging overnight at the National Sports Residence Hall will need to head to the camp prior to the class to drop off all bedding and clothing only. Students should plan to arrive at the camp on Monday morning between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to check in with the State Coordinating team at the camp. Once all luggage has been taken to the camp, students should plan to eat lunch, and arrive at the State Office Building, in professional attire, no later than 12:45 p.m. The TeenPact staff will greet you and direct you to the Welcome Table.

 

Please review the Dress Code prior to arriving at class.

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.
