Upward Bound and College Access Program Sends Students to Washington, D.C.

During the week of June 14-19, four of our most recent graduates representing the Upward Bound and College Access Program (CAP) at Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln High Schools will have the opportunity to travel to the nation’s capital in order to participate in a study visit focused on international relations. Participating in this unique experience arranged by the Close Up organization are Daniel Cano-Pargas (AL CAP), Annie Duncan (TJ CAP), Nathan Gregg (TJ Upward Bound), and Kyla Kern (TJ Upward Bound).

Since 1971, Close Up has facilitated Washington D.C. educational trips for middle and high school students. Their mission is to “inform, inspire, and empower young people to exercise their rights and accept the responsibilities of citizens in a democracy.” This is evident by the full schedule each day, allowing the group of students from around the nation to explore D.C. landmarks and memorials, engage in discussion and activities surrounding domestic issues and foreign policy, meet with their members of Congress, and observe Congressional committee hearings.

The four students were chosen by Upward Bound and CAP staff based on an application and essay. All expenses including airfare, lodging, and meals are covered by the programs they represent. Upon arrival in D.C., students will be greeted by Close Up staff who provide instruction and round the clock supervision throughout the experience. Congratulations, students, and enjoy this opportunity!
