Four Day Class

The Four Day Class is a dynamic, hands-on leadership experience where students learn about state government from a Christian worldview.

For students ages 13-19.

 

Please arrive by 12:30 p.m. on Monday at the Mississippi State Capitol Rotunda. A TeenPact staff member will meet and direct you to the classroom in the Woolfolk Building, across from the Capitol. Please eat lunch prior to class.
