What are Student Action Teams?
Student Action Teams provide real-life civics education by mobilizing students and parents to carefully selected political races on behalf of pro-family and pro-homeschooling candidates.
The experience of participating in a Student Action Team is unlike any other. To date, more than 3,000 students and parents have participated since 2003. In the 2008 elections, Generation Joshua students, parents, and team leaders contacted over 600,000 likely voters in the five days leading up to Election Day.
When are the Student Action Teams?
Student Action Teams are typically held in the fall, close to Election Day, although there may be some summer activities.
Where are the Student Action Teams?
Since 2003, we have campaigned for over 50 candidates.
How much does it cost?
If you are a Generation Joshua member, there is no additional cost to participate! We will cover expenses such as food, lodging, and transportation. Note: Some restrictions apply to transportation.

Is there an age range?
Students must be between 13-19 to attend the event without a chaperone. Students ages 11-12 must be accompanied by a chaperone. Students over the age of 19 should receive permission to attend prior to registering. Due to insurance restrictions, no child under 11 is permitted on the campaign trail without the child's parent on the same SAT.
How do I get there?
Getting to the Student Action Teams depends on a number of different factors. Typically if there is a team within your state or within a 3-5 hour drive, you will need to drive there. For teams that are 6-12 hours away, sometimes buses are available. Finally, in rare circumstances, flights may be available. Specific transportation details will be posted when it is solidified.
Where can I download the handbook?
When completed, the handbook will be available for download on the upper left hand corner of this screen under “Resources.” There is also a health and insurance form that needs to be completed by all participants.
