Local Students Present Video on Washington, D.C. Learning Experience
In late June, the Communities of Giving Legacy Initiative (CGLI), a fund and initiative of the Community Foundation, sponsored nine Western New York students on a trip to Washington, D.C. to experience government and democracy in action through a partnership with the Close Up Foundation. Using the city as a living classroom, each student was provided with access to people, processes and places that make our nation's capital so unique.
Upon their return home, each Close Up class is charged with "paying it forward" by sharing the knowledge they gained from this transformative journey with their peers and family. Click below to learn more about this experience from the CGLI's 2016 Close Up Class.
