The Onsite Program
The Onsite Program is a two-day abbreviated version of the week-long SSI summer experience for schools, home school groups and youth groups throughout Michigan and beyond. This dynamic hands-on legislative experience provides students the opportunity to quickly learn to analyze data, practice critical thinking and develop team approaches while exercising a Biblical Worldview curriculum and instruction in debate and communications.
The Onsite Program is available on your time frame, at your location and customized for your group.

How should I determine whether my student should attend the Onsite versus the Summer Program?
The Summer Program offers much more in terms of spiritual emphasis and leadership development, and provides an overall greater lasting impact in the lives of students. There is also more of a sense of realism in the summer program, as various tracks have the privilege of meeting in the Capitol Building and other professional facilities.
Onsites are held during the school year rather than in the summer, and are only held for two to three days rather than a week. There are no overnight accommodations and only one track (the House) is offered. Otherwise, the Onsite is basically a condensed version of the Summer Program, held for schools and homeschool groups across Michigan.
There are many parents who send their student to the Summer Program after attending the Onsite. This gives the student a better opportunity to benefit from the full program and gives them an idea of what to expect. However, if you can’t commit to a whole week, the Onsite would be a good second choice.
What are the age requirements to attend the Onsite? What do you recommend?
What is the dress code for the Onsite?
While a sport coat or suit is not required, the guys should at least wear dress slacks, with a dress shirt and tie. Girls should wear a dress, or a skirt or dress slacks with a nice top. We just want them to be dressed for the occasion.
As a parent, is there any way I can participate in the Onsite?
How would I go about hosting on Onsite in my community?
