BENEFITING: Close Up Foundation

THE STORY:

Close Up is a non-profit civic education organization that exists to help young people develop the skils and attitudes to active and engaged citizens. Since 1971, more than 500,000 students from across the country have graduated from Close Up programs. These Washington-based programs include seperate programs for both middle school and high school students.

Our highly-trained instructors turn the nation's capital into living classroom to help students get a "close up" experience of government and democracy in action. Students on the program will have the opportunity to discuss and debate current policy issues with peers from across the country, interact with media and policy experts, and meet with their members of Congress. Over 95% of alums report that the program helped them better understand their roles as citizens and inspired them to become more active in their schools and communities.
