Virtual Programs

Close Up’s dynamic, virtual programs provide students with rewarding, empowering, and genuine experiences that connect them with other students nationwide.

Virtual Learning Shadow

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 virtual programs connect students with their peers nationwide and help create lasting communities. Through our virtual programs, students gain the confidence to discuss and deliberate important issues, understand different perspectives, and work together to build consensus and connection to their communities and the world around them. With the guidance of Close Up’s experienced facilitators, students will come away engaged, inspired, and motivated to continue the vital work of active citizenship in their communities.
