Eleanor Vogelsang
Close Up Foundation

Eleanor is here today representing the Close Up Foundation, a non-profit civic education organization driven by a mission to inspire and empower young people to be engaged in our democracy. While Close Up is based in Washington, DC, Eleanor lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and works with multiple communities across the country to both raise awareness and funds to expand access to Close Up’s immersive education program.

Throughout her career, Eleanor has focused on the intersection of education with policy making and political knowledge. She has worked for various political entities and education non-profits, concentrating on increasing opportunities for underserved youth.

When she’s not working to keep our democracy strong, Eleanor can be found exploring local hiking trails, curled up on her couch reading, or trying to keep up with her energetic nephews.

She received a Bachelors in political science from Colorado College and a Masters in Legislative Affairs from George Washington University.
