Why just study history, when you can make it?
Close Up’s Premier Election Series provides three exciting programs offered only once every four years–so don’t miss out!
Close Up’s Premier Election Series not only gives students the chance to witness history as it unfolds, but also the opportunity to delve into the most important and poignant issues facing our nation. Like our Washington, DC Program, our Election Series brings students face-to-face with the people and institutions that impact policy decisions in and around Washington. They will also learn about our election process first-hand! As only Close Up can do, we draw upon our educational partnerships and over 50 years of experience to provide hands-on, interactive discussions with an emphasis on specific policy issues. These once-in-a-lifetime programs include:
National Youth Impact Summit
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!
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 plan to introduce Close Up’s professional development to the teachers I work with…
and use this as a part of my school’s requirement that students take action on issues of local, national, and international importance.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
