iElect Teen Program

by Generation Joshua

Registration opens in January!

Calling all teens: Come get involved in a mock presidential campaign that involves all adult convention attendees while you learn how a real election works in this year’s teen program!

The presidential campaign includes caucus work, a primary race, voter registration, fundraising, commercials, campaigning, and actual voting.

Participants will be assigned to a mock political party and work together to design their own party platform, elect their own candidates, and raise money to run the campaign, allowing them to buy commercials, campaign materials, and advertisements.

Adult conference attendees will join in by registering to vote, donating GenJ money to back a candidate, and voting. (Parents will be provided with the money at registration.)

Engage your high schoolers in hands-on civic lesson they will not only enjoy, but will never forget. They’ll learn at each phase of the program how a real election works by actually participating in the presidential race and making important decisions that could make or break their campaign.
