DETAILED DESCRIPTION: The Close-Up Program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience their government in action. From visits to Washington's D.C.'s famous monuments, memorials and institutions, to meetings with their Congressional delegation on Capital Hill, students will get a firsthand look at the American political system, and consider what role they, as students, play in our democracy. Throughout the week, the students explore D.C. and interact with other students from all across the country. We begin meeting in September to raise interest in the program and begin organizing the trip.

MEETING TIMES: Various planning meetings will take place starting in September and continue leading up to the trip the first week of February.  

ACTIVITY POINTS: 10
