Connect Your Students to the World Around Them
“I gained resources, a forum, inspiration, and knowledge needed to take action on issues that affect my community and the nation.” – Robert, Student, CA
Our remote learning programs help create lasting virtual communities. Students gain the confidence to discuss important issues, learn how to respectfully disagree, and work together to build consensus and connection to their communities and the world around them. With the guidance of Close Up’s experienced curriculum team, students will come away engaged, inspired, and motivated to continue the vital work of active citizenship at home.
