Students Get First Hand Look at the Legislative Process
 
Little Rock, Ar. Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin was honored to host at the State Capitol TeenPact, a leadership organization developed to allow students to get a first-hand look at the legislative process. TeenPact was founded with a mission to train youth to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage in their culture. Thousands of students participate in Teen Pact nationwide.
 I am always honored and pleased to host events like these at the State Capitol. TeenPact is a great example of young people taking action to secure a better future for Arkansas and for America, Secretary Martin said. I have long said that focusing on the next generation, and not the next election, will be how we move America forward.
 Teens spent the week meeting with legislators and lobbyists, participating in mock elections, and heated debates. Every one of these TeenPact students was eager to discuss issues facing our state and country today. Many of these teens have hopes to one day take part in the legislative process.
 Every year TeenPact hosts a National Convention, which is the climax of the TeenPact year, drawing close to 1,000 people from around the Nation. Students experience engaging speakers, passionate worship, dynamic small groups, hands-on activities, leadership opportunities, like-minded friends, and life-changing memories.
