We inspire thoughtful conversations and authentic community engagement.
Our experience working with thousands of diverse public, private, and charter schools allows us to understand and draw upon a wide range of approaches to civic and community engagement specific to the culture and values of each school. We aim to spark rich, productive, and inspiring conversations among administrators, faculty, students, families, community partners, and other stakeholders.
Examples of our curriculum consulting work include:
I learned that there’s a huge network of people with the same goals and drive as me…
and that our collaboration really could make a difference. It gave me hope for the future of our communities and our nation!
Close Up made me realize how SIGNIFICANT my thoughts and views are…
Although everyone will not always agree, everyone has a voice and needs to be heard.
Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
As a government teacher, it’s nice to have more resources…
for teaching media literacy and having students critically think about the information they receive.
