Dear Home School Families,

My family has been homeschooling for the past 14 years and it has certainly been an adventure, as I’m sure your journey has been as well.  I think we can all agree that choosing to home educate is one of the best decisions we’ve all made! 

Because of our common desire to offer excellent learning opportunities for our children, I am excited to tell you about another wonderfully enriching program called TeenPact Leadership Schools.  TeenPact currently conducts week-long classes in 42 state capitols where we teach students about all the components of state government.  TeenPact’s mission statement is as follows: “TeenPact Leadership Schools seeks to inspire youth in their relationship with Christ and train them to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things.”  Our student led staff meets with students for four days at their respective capitol (this year Carson City!) for an incredible hands-on learning experience which includes field experiences, listening to speakers, prayer walks, participating in a mock legislature, passing bills through committees and much more.  As a bonus, each student receives 1/3 Carnegie credit by attending a state class. The highlight for most students is the fun they have during the Evening Sessions each night where they interact with the staff, play games participate in worship and hear from a speaker.   Each student is challenged to think critically, grow spiritually and come away with an excellent understanding of the state government and servant leadership all while have a ton of fun and making new friends.

The Four Day class (Monday – Thursday) is for students 13-19 years of age with the option to stay for the Political Communication Workshop on Friday.  Also on Friday, we offer a One Day class for 8 – 12 year olds.  The One Day is a “snap shot” of what happens at the Four Day and is filled with worship, skits, pray walks, discussing bills in committees, elections and much more.  It’s a fabulous day to spend with younger students while introducing them to state government processes.  They will have fun without knowing they are learning as well. 

This year the Four Day class is February 12-16:

     Four Day class (13-19 year olds)- Feb 12-15      

    One Day class (8-12 year olds)- Feb 16

    Political Communications Workshop (13-19)-Feb        

       16
