For years TeenPact students have raved about the vibrant, interactive ”Mock Legislature” portion of our state class. With this in mind, we are excited to announce the all new TeenPact Congress! It will be a legislative experience unlike anything TeenPact has ever produced.
During this event, students will have the opportunity to serve as US TeenPact Senators, Representatives, Reporters, and Lobbyists, as they walk through the legislative process from opening session to sine die. In this “hands on” environment, each participant will learn, practice and defend the theory and process of representing citizens and making public policy. Students will have the ability to sponsor bills, participate in committee meetings, work with lobbyists*, as well as debate and amend bills on the floor of the Florida House and Senate Chambers. Those interested in media will be able to take part in live press conferences and interviews, followed by the opportunity to report on their investigative findings.
After the heat of the legislative battle, students will return to camp and experience the joy of TeenPact worship, competition of ultimate frisbee, and the spiritual growth of rendezvous. End your summer with TeenPact friends and an experience that will make a lasting impression on your life!
Positions are subject to availability and are on a first come first serve basis; make sure to register today to ensure your spot! Those interested in media are encouraged to sign up to be a reporter, as you will have tracks special to your field.
Changing lives to change the world.
