Up with People, a global education and arts organization whose goal is to bridge cultural barriers and create global understanding through service and music, will stop in Hamilton on its world tour with its 100-person cast of young performers from September 3-10, 2012.
The Hamilton Wenham Edfund has funded a grant to bring Up With People to the area. This multi-national cast will be providing their experiences in the HW schools that week, culminating with their world-renowned performances on Friday and Saturday evenings, September 7 and 8 for the public at the Hamilton Wenham Regional High School gymnasium.
The Edfund invites Pingree families to help promote and attend the performances on Friday and Saturday nights and to host cast members for the week. For more information, visit the website at www.hwedfund.org or the Facebook page at Hamilton Wenham Edfund.
According the Up With People website at www.upwithpeople.org, students from all parts of the world are invited to travel abroad with UWP for one or two semesters. Each international tour embarks with nearly 100 participants ages 18 – 29 from more than 15 countries. With a diverse student group like this, no matter where in the world the tour goes, students are having an international experience!
For some, the program is their Gap Year experience for personal growth and adventure between high school and university. For others, it is a multi-continent, education abroad experience during college or a global learning and resumé building opportunity after graduation. Our international students also seek to perfect their english-language skills while traveling in the program.
For everyone, our program is an opportunity to develop the skills and attributes needed to be an active global citizen and open the mind to endless opportunity!
