Up with People Jr.

Up with People Jr. (UWP Jr.) offers a fun and high energy music arts performance based experience while helping children develop:

  • Life Skills
  • Confidence
  • Sense of Community
  • Greater Sense of Independence
  • Respect and Understanding of Our Global Society

We have taken inspiration from Up with People, and developed a day camp curriculum is rooted in learning and performing Up with People songs, and dances, participating in community action projects, and creating respect, awareness and appreciation, both locally and globally, for different cultures.  Children who attend this summer program are better equipped with skills to make positive changes in their home, schools, community and the world.

Designed to mirror the mission and message of Up with People, the UWP Jr. shows include curricula content standards addressing topics such as culture, international awareness and personal identity. Each song in the show is accompanied by a lesson plan to enhance the student’s understanding of the song and its message.
