About Us

Close Up informs, inspires, and empowers young people to exercise the rights and accept the responsibilities of citizens in a democracy.


Founded in 1971, Close Up educates and inspires young people to become informed and engaged citizens. To achieve this, we work closely with teachers, administrators, parents and students nationwide. We fulfill our mission by providing challenging, hands-on civic education programs for students and teachers in Washington, D.C.These programs are known for their positive impact on student attitudes and for giving teachers valuable insights to take back to classrooms nationwide.
