Alaska Close Up Session Info *Updated!

Alaska Close Up has been creating Alaska’s future leaders for the past 30 years and has served over 3,000 students. Interested for your students? Start here.

Alaska Close Up brings Secondary students into Juneau to meet and network with other Alaskan students and teachers. The program seeks to instill a sense of civic duty into Alaska’s youth, helping to inspire them to participate effectively as informed, responsible citizens of our state.  The program teaches students about state government firsthand through an academic curriculum and arranged field trips that introduce them to the role of the three branches of their state government and their responsibilities as a citizen.

Activities include: working with legislators and others in state government to solve a local problem, visiting various government sites, and holding standing committee and legislative session simulations.

Each week-long session is packed with exciting activities that are aligned with Alaska Content Standards.

Alaska Close Up is open to any secondary student currently enrolled in an Alaskan school (including home schools).

Registration information will be available soon. Any questions can be directed to Jeffrey Smith or Pat Bock in our SERRC office: (907) 586-6806. Or sign up below to receive email updates.
