TeenPact New Hampshire

TeenPact is a youth in government program that takes students ages 13-19 and immerses them in a hands on, week long civics course at their state capitol. TeenPact was founded in 1994 with a mission to train youth 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. Students can participate in the Four Day Class or the Political Communication Workshop at the Capitol in Concord.
