Here's another opportunity for teens! It's called TeenPact. Though I have no personal experience with this program, nor any association with the organization that runs it, I've heard a lot of homeschool parents rave about their experience with them in years past. The following information is from an email I received.
I'd like to recommend TeenPact Leadership Schools to you! 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. In the three years that my family has been involved in TeenPact events, I've seen young people realize that they can understand, and be part of, our American political process and truly make a difference in our state and our country.
We have many goals for our children as home educating families — goals that pertain to their spiritual, academic, leadership and character growth. TeenPact provides families the tools needed to train their children in developing leadership and communication skills, how to be knowledgeable and therefore comfortable with our legislative and political process, and to be effective witnesses for Jesus Christ in the public arena. These young people develop a heart for God and a passion to impact the culture, all before they are old enough to vote!

I'm a homeschooling mom of two, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
