Teen Program: i-Elect

By Generation Joshua, HSLDA

Perfect civics project for an election year!

Teens will enjoy a special program called i-Elect, a mock presidential election that gives them the chance to experience the challenges of running for the highest office in the land.

Participants will take part in a mock presidential campaign that includes caucus work, a primary race, voter registration, fundraising, commercials, campaigning, and actual voting. They will form their own political parties, develop their platforms, and select their own candidates to represent them, and raise “GenJ” money to advertise and lobby, advertisements, etc.

Through this simulation, students will learn the ins and outs of grassroots campaigns, the nomination process, and what it takes to be a leader. At each phase of the program, students will learn how a real election works by actually participating in the presidential race and making important decisions that could make or break their campaign.

The program is designed to be interactive, even getting parents and other attendees involved in the process!
