Mission: Through music and action, we empower youth to be positive agents of change to build a more hopeful, trusting, and peaceful world.

UWP Overview: Up with People is building a more hopeful, trusting and peaceful world by empowering young people to be positive agents of change through action and the international and powerful language of music. Participants from 20 countries travel to a new destination each week and throughout this journey, they strive to impact communities through host family stays, cultural exchange and 1,000+ hours of community service generally impacting 2,500+ youth per week! Up with People's time in the community culminates with a two-hour professionally produced show that inspires audience members to think about what they will do to keep hope alive in their communities and take action. 100% of show ticket revenue is donated back to local charities chosen by our sponsors.
