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 brophyd@edmonds.wednet.edu. They have a great website, www.closeup.org, to check out as well.
