Homeschoolers Invited to Champlain College Young Writers’ Conference May 29-31

We have released the carrier pigeons, and the concourses are alight. You are once again cordially invited to attend a weekend of writing workshops, craft sessions, and open mic at the Champlain College Young Writers' Conference, May 29-31. Now in our fifteenth year, our doors are open to high school-aged students who wish to share their passion for story, drama, and song with their writerly brothers and sisters—and with celebrated New England authors.

TeenPact, Christian Leadership School in Concord

TeenPact, a Christian leadership school, will be held at the capitol in Concord in April. TeenPact's 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. Each TeenPact program is marked by spiritual discipleship, student leadership, parental involvement and a commitment to excellence.
Our class dates in Concord:
Four-Day Class (13-19 year olds) – April 6-9, 2015
