TeenPact Mississippi, February 16-20, Jackson, MS.
TeenPact is a dynamic, hands-on leadership school for Christian students age
13-19. Their 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.”
Classes are taught at the state capitol, and include studying the legislative
process by drafting and passing legislation. Students meet their elected
officials, and interact with other public officials, lobbyists and capitol
staff, all the while learning about the Biblical underpinnings of a moral and
The cost for a first-time student for the 4-day program is $240, $200 for
returning students. Discounts are available for early registration, ($30 off
if you register in September), and groups of 10 registering at the same time,
(another $15). Only $50 is due when you sign up, the rest isn’t due until two
weeks before classes begin.
Students stay at Twin Lakes Camp, with transportation provided by the TeenPact
staff and parent volunteers. Parents are welcome to stay at the camp as well,
and some host housing can be found. The past several years a donor has
covered the cost of the camp for the first 50 students to sign up.
A one-day class is offered for students 8-12, and a one-day class is offered
to the 13-19 year old students in political communication as well.
Evenings are filled with Bible study, praise & worship, and frisbee. The kids
love it. More information is available at www.teenpact.com. If you have

We had a great turnout for the CHENM Ice cream Social. Several hundred homeschoolers and vendors came to our two hour orientation and we didn’t run out of ice cream! I would like to thank Adam and Kristen Simpson for all of their effort into making the event a success and to NorthStar Church for providing a great venue. Also, thanks to all of the many vendors who came to share their services to the home school community. If you missed the social and are still interested in joining CHENM, take a look at the “Membership” page at CHENM.org to see what steps need to be taken to be a member of our team. Also, if you are a member and didn’t make the social, please remember to mail your dues in the amount of $25 to CHENM at PO Box 3441, Tupelo, MS 38803. Thanks for your support. Kelly
