In partnership with Stanford’s Center for Deliberative Democracy, Close Up is offering opportunities for students to participate in deliberative polling with high school students from across the country. These deliberations and courses allow students to identify the most important issues facing their generation, and gain the knowledge and skills needed to lead deliberation in their own communities.
Date & Time: Wednesday, November 10th | 7:00–9:00pm (EST)
Eligibility: High School Students (grades 9-12)
How can young people engage on issues that matter to them and create a space for an informed exchange of ideas and perspectives? This November, join over 500 high school students nationwide for an online deliberation followed by a student-led reflection. This FREE event is being implemented and designed by students who participated in Close Up and Stanford’s Learning Deliberative Democracy course.
In partnership with Stanford’s Center for Deliberative Democracy, this virtual summer course brought students from across the country to work on a real-world deliberative democracy project using Deliberative Polling. Students discussed and identified the most important issues facing their generation, and developed the skills needed to navigate these conversations in their home communities.
Participation in a Close Up program requires parent or guardian approval for any participants under 18 years of age.
