IMPACT

 

Join us for Impact – a unique and engaging virtual program designed to help middle school and high school students develop the skills necessary to pursue a passion, tackle a community need, and form a network with other young leaders from across the country. The National Network of Schools in Partnership and Close Up Foundation have partnered to offer Impact, a program designed to help young people connect to the world around them, develop their sense of purpose, and empower them to make a local impact on global issues. Led by Close Up Instructors, Impact has two program options:

 

INTRODUCTION TO COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT is a three-day foundational program that connects students across the country who are eager to learn how they can become active and involved members in their communities. Ideal for students who are new to advocacy work. Over the course of the three sessions, students will participate in a variety of activities to explore their sense of purpose, develop leadership skills, and thrill critically about social and political issues that matter most to them. A similar model is available for schools who would like to customize this program for a particular class, grade level, or district-wide project.  Please contact programsupport@closeup.org for more information.
