Teen track added to local home school conference

March 14, 2012

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — Local teens are invited to attend the "I Legislate" training session offered by Generation Joshua taking place during the Eastern Panhandle Home School Conference (EPHSC) on Saturday, March 24, at Covenant Church, 7485 Shepherdstown Pike, Shepherdstown, W.Va.

"I Legislate" features interactive activities simulating what a legislator encounters when drafting and advocating legislation. Teens will choose between competing priorities such as personal legislative goals, the political party goals, and professional agreements.  

The goal of the day-long teen track offered at the EPHSC is to train students to respond to political pressures and gain an understanding of how our leaders make tough decisions. Ultimately, the day-long workshop trains participants to advocate for Christian principles as they serve their country. A short video about the Generation Joshua project can be viewed at www.geneerationjoshua.org/dnn/Home/tabid/1/Defalut.aspx. A minimum of 15 teens are required to attend.

A $25 fee includes sessions and lunch.

The Eastern Panhandle Home School Conference is open to all new or veteran home educators. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. The keynote begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by the "I Legislate" session for teens and a full slate of workshops for adults at 9:30 a.m. Workshop choices, schedule and registration for adults and teens can be found at ephsc.org/index.htm.
