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 (NNSP) 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 feel empowered to make a local impact on global issues.
This program, led by Close Up Instructors, gives students the opportunity to work in teams with diverse peers, hear inspiring stories from young activists on strategies and models of advocacy and activism, deepen their understanding of issues and root causes in their communities, and build a coalition of young leaders who are catalysts for change.
For questions about scholarship opportunities, or if your school/group is interested in customizing dates for an entire grade, a course, or a specific group such as student government or a club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participation in a Close Up program requires parent or guardian approval for any participants under 18 years of age.
