Discuss and advocate for important tribal issues!
Close Up has longstanding partnerships with the United South and Eastern Tribes (USET) and the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), as well as a history of developing programs for native and non-native students alike. These programs include:
National Youth Impact Summit
Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
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 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!
