Have fun with other teachers, gain insight, and earn graduate credits!
As Close Up guides and supervises students in their trip of a lifetime, educators have the option to take part in a program of their own: our innovative Close Up Teacher Program which runs parallel to the student experience. By participating, teachers gain a nationwide network of fellow educators, new teaching tools and strategies, and eligibility for graduate credits or continuing education units.
Led by our seasoned team of teacher program specialists, the Close Up Teacher Program is a fascinating experience for DC veterans and first-timers alike. The cornerstones of the program include:
Refer a teacher and earn $500!
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!
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.
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.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
