Today I got the chance to attend TeenPact Wisconsin’s graduation ceremony. According to 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. http://teenpact.com/about/
In high school, a lot of my friends did TeenPact. I, however, was a Gen Jer and 100% loyal to Generation Joshua. There was no room for anything else. I got a taste of what I missed out on attending the graduation today. It was really cool.
TeenPact gives students the opportunity to learn about legislation, pass bills, etc. in each state’s capital.This particular group numbered about 40 and they spent their 4-day camp working inside Madison’s beautiful capital. For their last session and graduation, they were in the state Assembly Chamber.
I still hold the Generation Joshua iGovern camps were (and will always be!) better, but I’m glad an opportunity like this exists. It is a great way to make government understandable and applicable for students.
