The Class of 2012 is partnering with the Close-Up Foundation to travel to Washington, D.C. this summer! Using the nation’s capital as a living classroom, participants get a “close up” view of government and democracy in action.
We will travel to D.C. to get educated and inspired to become informed and engaged citizens. Our aim is not just to expand our minds and heart through experiencing new places and people, but it is also to learn things that we can bring back to our lives here in Oakland.
As a team of seven juniors and one teacher, we are working together to make sure we raise the money to pay for our program expenses, but we need some help from family and friends to raise the remainder of the funds.
