One of Up with People’s core values is to empower youth to be positive agents of change. We do this through “Community Action” projects. It’s how we reach, engage, support and inspire communities during our weeklong stay.
Through our Community Action philosophy, we do more than just get our hands dirty in service work. We also spark conversations among youth and community members about what they care about in their community, and how they have the power to make an impact.
We engage and enrich communities through our willingness to get out and do… we pick up shovels and paintbrushes, we bring smiles and lift spirits, we challenge minds and create ideas.
In every community we visit, Up with People cast members complete 800-1000 hours of volunteer work during two to four Community Action Days. We partner with local schools and community organizations, working with hundreds of agencies and a wide variety of causes each year.
