Programs Encouraging Youth to Become Informed Citizens

During the week of November 4, 2018, students and teachers can join other school groups from around the nation for a once-in-a-lifetime experience through Close Up’s Election Week Programs. Close Up’s Student Programs for middle school and high school focus on civics, political efficacy, and skill development. Highlights include an exclusive election issues seminar with Washington insiders; student-led hot topics debate; election night results party; mock Congress simulation; Arlington Cemetery, memorial and monument study visits; theater night; and much more. The full schedule of events planned for Election Week is posted online. Close Up’s Teacher Program runs parallel to the student programs. The organization welcomes individual educators, adults, and parents to enroll in the Teacher Program and gain professional development, educational resources, and unique insights into the history of the United States. Registration for Close Up’s Election Week Programs is open until September 8, 2018. Close Up provides need-based tuition assistance based on family income and total number of participants per school.
