Four Day Class

February 3-6, 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.

 

On Monday, February 3, please meet the TeenPact staff in the Lobby of the Drury Plaza Hotel by 12:30 p.m. Staff members will walk with you to the meeting room. If you are staying at the Drury Plaza, you may drop your luggage there where they will keep it until you check in later. If you are familiar with Apodaca Hall in the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission Building (the old PERA building), you may go directly there at 12:45 p.m. All students should eat lunch prior to class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

 

There is limited parking available around the PERA building, where our meeting room, Apodaca Hall, is located. There is metered parking around the Capitol but it is extremely limited.  The Drury Plaza provides complimentary valet parking for guests and it is a short walk to Apodaca Hall.

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 at the Drury Plaza Hotel 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. Commuter students and parents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

 

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.
