Have you ever heard of TeenPact?
From their website:
TeenPact is a dynamic, hands-on leadership school for Christian students. Our mission is to train youth to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend their Christian faith and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things.
The TeenPact experience is one of intentional growth, education and encouragement. We believe that God gives every young person a great spiritual capacity as well as a scriptural mandate to cultivate and use their talents – even before they are old enough to drive, work or vote! TeenPact trains these young people to embrace their call as the next generation of leaders by giving them tools, teaching and opportunities.
Each TeenPact program is marked by spiritual discipleship, student leadership, parental involvement and a commitment to excellence. Our loyal base of parent volunteers and student leaders keep the vision alive and growing as we continue to expand nationally. Founded in 1994 by Tim Echols, TeenPact currently offers classes in 39 states and counting.
“Changing lives to change the world” is more than a motto to us. It’s literally what we do every day.
My son attended for the first time last year and WOW! is all we can say. (You can read about our experience in my post “Worth More Than Money“.) Honestly I hadn’t planned on him attending again due to the first year cost (which we were able to find a sponsor to pay for it, praise the Lord)…but when he got home from attending – the first thing he said is he wanted to go back next year. Uh oh. LOL
Well…that time is coming up pretty quickly now…Fortunately, attending after the first year is significantly less expensive. And there is an option to “put down a deposit” when you register and then pay the balance a couple weeks before the actual event (April for our State, I think?).
Anyway, we have a “co-op” we attend that has two 10-week sessions each year: Spring and Fall. We started the Spring session last week which means TEEN PACT work! Excited! So all those attending TeenPact from our homeschool group get together at the co-op and do the pre-TeenPact assignments. It is a wonderful time for our kids to learn about leadership and our government. We are SO EXCITED to be attending again this year!
Check it out if you have a High Schooler – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Although it is “another thing to add to our list of already too many things to do” it is SO WORTH IT! If you have one near you, we would HIGHLY SUGGEST checking it out!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
