Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
Close Up is AMAZING…
I could not recommend it more highly. I took a group of 10 juniors as a first year teacher and all nerves I had were alleviated by my rep and the organization itself. It was THE smoothest process and week ever. You should never pass up an opportunity to experience Close Up!!!
This is a GREAT way to experience other places…
meet new students and learn more about government.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
