Hands-On Civics Education Program
With over 40 years of experience, Close Up is the nation’s largest
non-profit and non-partisan citizenship education organization; and they are
driven by a mission to help students become more effective and informed
citizens. Thousands of American HS students do student trips to Washington DC
with peers from around America to learn about: national and international
issues; meet state and federal level policymakers; visit and learn about
historical sites; and learn about how our gov’t functions formally and informally.
MTHS students, grades 9-12, have the opportunity to participate over Spring
Break 2017. Students please stop by room 213 to talk to Mr. Brophy
for more information, parents please email email@example.com.
They have a great website, www.closeup.org, to
check out as well.
