Start a Local Program in Your State!
Our middle school programs are designed to bring the democratic process alive for students by providing hands-on opportunities to examine the history and government of their state and deepen their understanding of how the three branches of government interact. Through these locally-based initiatives, Close Up helps school districts and organizations provide students with the skills needed to make a difference in their own communities.
To learn how you can work together with us in creating a local program, please contact us at email@example.com.
Participation in a Close Up program requires parent or guardian approval for any participants under 18 years of age.

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.
