Start a Local Program in Your State!
Our middle school programs are designed to bring the democratic process alive for students by providing hands-on opportunities to examine the history and government of their state and deepen their understanding of how the three branches of government interact. Through these locally-based initiatives, Close Up helps school districts and organizations provide students with the skills needed to make a difference in their own communities.
To learn how you can work together with us in creating a local program, please contact us at email@example.com.
Participation in a Close Up program requires parent or guardian approval for any participants under 18 years of age.
Close Up made me realize how SIGNIFICANT my thoughts and views are…
Although everyone will not always agree, everyone has a voice and needs to be heard.
As a government teacher, it’s nice to have more resources…
for teaching media literacy and having students critically think about the information they receive.
I’m truly blown away by what Close Up’s been able to accomplish in the last two weeks during IMPACT 2020…
The material seems very high level, and my daughter’s been very motivated to participate every day. I wanted to be sure to commend the staff on providing such a great experience!
I learned that there’s a huge network of people with the same goals and drive as me…
and that our collaboration really could make a difference. It gave me hope for the future of our communities and our nation!
