Four Day Class

April 1-4, 2019 April 15-18, 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 should plan to meet at the State Library of Oregon. Please arrive between 12:30 p.m. and 12:45 p.m to check in at the class. TeenPact Staff will be outside to greet you and direct you to the classroom.

 

Please review our dress code before attending the class.
