BENEFITING: Close Up Foundation


Founded in 1971, Close Up is non-profit that educates and inspires young people to active and engaged citizens. In addition to Close Up's Washington-based programs for students, we also offer a professional development program for teachers.

The Close Up Teacher program is the only one of its kind. Teachers complete a series of fast-paced modules led by our Curriculum Specialists,
share best teaching practices, and return home with new tools to help students better understand their roles as active citizens.

Our innovative program has 3 cornerstones: 1) a dynamic curriculum that helps teachers keep pace with rapid change; 2) a peer-to-peer learning method in which teachers from every type of school setting share insights on how to make democracy come alive for students; and 3) use of the nation’s capital as a learning lab. Our classroom without walls draws on the vast expertise of partners such as the U.S. Congress and outstanding speakers such as Education Secretary Arnie Duncan.
