World Up is a non-profit organization that makes the world smaller through music, education, and technology. We empower youth by teaching them basic skills using music and technology. Through our afterschool programs, partnerships with international artists and local musicians, we explore global issues and tech skills that are shaping the next generation.

Since our fruition in 2004, we have been fostering diversity, cross-cultural understanding, and social change with educational programming and events, like our music festivals and conferences. Helmed by a diverse set of volunteers, we are united by a deep love for music, and our faith in its power as a tool for social change. This website is an ongoing exploration of what World Up is and what it can be.
