With young people looking to play an active role in developing solutions to the issues that affect them, our IMPACT programs give them that chance. Offered by Close Up and the National Network of Schools in Partnership, IMPACT programs bring together high school students from across the United States to develop a sense of purpose, discuss and create solutions for pressing issues, learn about models of advocacy and activism, and become catalysts for effective change in their communities.
