What Is Up With People?
Up With People is an apolitical, non-religious, non-profit organization that started in 1965. The goal of Up With People is to help build a more hopeful, trusting and peaceful world.
Up With People uses music and personal interaction to unite people and communities. International casts of students travel and put on musical shows worldwide.
Thousands of people have traveled with Up With People over the years. It is no surprise that many Up With People alumni live on Prince Edward Island! In the coming years many more Islanders will likely travel with Up With People.

A time to reconnect with alumni you already know, connect with new alumni, rejuvenate your UWP spirit and connect with UWP Canada which is officially back! Also a great time for potential UWP students to chat with alumni. After supper it will be an “open mic” type affair – so bring your instruments and/or stories!

Please bring some items if you’re able.
UWP Day in PEI A Success!
Up With People Day in PEI was a lot of fun. It always is when Uppies get together, right? 🙂 Attendees include alumni from the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s – and a multi-generation Uppie family with the glimpse of possibly another generation up and coming. Here are some videos of the PEI alumni singing some UWP favourites – “What Colour Is God’s Skin”, “One Tin Soldier”, and of course “Up With People”! Thanks to Steve Bruce for his videography skills!
