The message of our performance – bringing the world together - inspires the audience to get involved in their own communities and make a positive contribution.

During their week in Jyväskylä, the cast will live with local host families and participate in volunteer community service projects in the Jyväskylä and Muurame schools and throughout the community. Proceeds from The Journey will go to local charities.
Up with People is being sponsored in Jyväskylä by: Jyväskylän Rotary Club, Rotary Club Jyväskylä-Tourula, Nordea, LähiTapiola Keski-Suomi, Alkio-opisto, Keskisuomalainen and Radio Kompassi.
