Close Up

Close Up Washington is a wonderful project-based approach to civic education that incorporates service learning and has been shown to increase academic engagement in students. With the help of financial contributions from donors throughout West Michigan, Kent ISD has provided fellowships for students who would otherwise not be able to afford this opportunity and allowed them to attend the Close Up Washington program.
