2017 Best Buddies Close Up Experience
Best Buddies is partnering with the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities and the Close Up Foundation to send six buddy pairs to Washington, DC for an incredible experience. Close Up’s flagship High School Program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience their government in action.
From visits to Washington’s famous monuments, memorials, and institutions, to meetings with their Congressional delegation on Capitol Hill, Close Up students get a first-hand look at the American political system and consider what role they, as students, play in our democracy.
