Programs to Participate In

Citizens for Traditional Values
Citizens for Traditional Values (CTV) is a nonprofit civic league founded in 1983 working on the grassroots level to encourage an active and informed citizenry in the State of Michigan. CTV seeks to broaden public understanding of the importance of personal freedom and traditional family values; and to work for the adoption of laws and public policies which reflect those values. This is accomplished by educating, networking, and mobilizing the pro-life, pro-family community.

Student Statesmanship Institute

The Student Statesmanship Institute (SSI) is a unique hands-on Biblical worldview and leadership program for high school students featuring legislative, media, business, campaign and judicial tracks. The real-world professional career simulations and dynamic faith-filled environment combine to develop character, instill purpose and equip young people with highly relevant life-skills. SSI is a fun and exciting learning experience that prepares teenagers for every aspect of their future.

Box Tops

We have a great opportunity to raise money for SINCH by collecting Box Tops for Education on select products. If you do not know much about the program please go to http://www.boxtops4education.com to get more information. We can also earn money for our group by shopping online! If you are an online shopper it is so easy, log on to your Box Top account (make sure your school is SINCH) and you can go to over 100 retailers and earn box tops for our group, details on the website. You can also find coupons, recipes and more. Don't forget to tell family and friends to save them for you! Please be sure to completely cut out the box top and check the expiration date before turning them in, this helps everyone who prepares them before sending them in for our group.

Michigan State Requirements

The State of Michigan has a website listing courses required for graduation for public school students. This may be helpful for determining what courses your children might need for college preparation. Please check Home School Legal Defense for the requirements for homeschoolers in your state.
