A Unique Opportunity for WV Teens

by | Sep 16, 2021 | Articles, High School

Generation Joshua is a civics organization that has consistently offered a place for teens to energetically grapple with the tough questions of modern politics and government. Besides hearing from speakers who unapologetically love America, teens receive exposure to thoughtful arguments supporting principles of freedom and constitutional government while they mature in their relationship with Christ. Biblical values of liberty and self-government come alive!

Founded by Mike Farris in 2003, Generation Joshua offers multiple opportunities for members to grow in their understanding and empowerment as American citizens. Click here to join two West Virginia homeschoolers who share about their own experiences in GenJ.

Opportunities and resources for West Virginia homeschoolers:

Student Action Teams

Students volunteer for intense but exciting 5-day experiences that afford GenJ members behind-the-scenes access to the political process as they participate in pro-homeschooling, pro-life political campaigns. Costs are covered and parents are invited too! Learn more here.

iGovern Leadership Camps

iGovern is a week-long summer camp experience where teens learn first-hand about government and politics by entering an immersive simulation. They personally encounter the roles and structures of government by taking on real leadership positions in a pseudo-U.S. government scenario, figuring out how the process works through coaching and training from our staff and guest speakers. Learn more about iGovern here!

This is an interactive, teacher-led civics course in partnership with the HSLDA Online Academy.
