Four Day Class

April 22-25, 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.

 

The Four Day Class will meet in the Legislative Office Building. A TeenPact staff member will meet you in the Time Square Area of the Concourse at 12:30 p.m. on Monday. All students should eat lunch prior to arriving at class.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.

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.
