Four Day Class

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.

Students lodging overnight at Dunrovin Retreat Center will need to head to the Residential Camp, prior to the class, to drop off all bedding and clothing only. Students should plan to arrive at Dunrovin 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.

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 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.  Parents and commuter students are invited as well. If interested, please plan to eat dinner prior to the Evening Session each day.

 

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 at the class each day, or sign your student up for the residential camp.

 

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!
