Up With People

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, University-sponsored faculty-led study abroad programs are on hold. We look forward to the return of a robust travel program schedule at WNE.

Travel. Lead. Change.
The world is waiting for leaders like you.

Do you love music? Hunger to travel internationally? Want to lead the change we need in the world?

The Up with People organization is building a more hopeful, trusting, and peaceful world by empowering young people to be positive agents of change. Up with People takes young adults (ages 17-29) on a semester-long, multi-continent tour to affect change and inspire the communities they visit. Participants from 20 countries travel to a new destination each week and throughout this journey, they strive to impact the communities they visit through host family stays, cultural exchange, 1,000+ hours of community service, leadership and diversity programming for 2,500+ youth, and the international language of music!

Whether you are comfortable on the stage or working behind the scenes, learn how you can be a part of this life-changing opportunity. Learn more
