World U.P. Foundation
Based out of Richmond, Virginia, World U.P. is changing the conversation from "THEM" to "US" and promoting peaceful diversity and universal understanding by improving access to cross-cultural education and experiences.
Organized in 2016, the World U.P. Foundation was created by people motivated to:
Promote understanding and peaceful diversity.
Remove barriers to create opportunities, access, availability, and inclusivity.
Create experiences that cultivate knowledge, understanding, conversations, and education.
Enrich the lives of individuals through betterment, enhancement, and growth.
Align a united global perspective by changing the conversation from “them” to “us.”
Every program and event we hold is designed to improve access to 5 areas that we believe have the biggest impact on shaping the culture of a community.
Health & Wellness
With this initiative, our goal is to promote and improve access to opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources and different cultural perspectives on Health & Wellness, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
Arts & Music
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new opportunities to highlight how different cultures approach art and music in their society.
Communication & Languages
At World U.P. Foundation, we are dedicated to breaking down the communication barriers that keep communities separated and isolated.
Cultural Immersion Experiences
We strive to improve access to activities that expand our knowledge of different people, places, and ideas. From engaging with a neighboring community to traveling to a different country, we believe that these experiences are the key to unlocking understanding and peaceful diversity within cities.
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for improving access to resources that build and support our communities. We aim to accomplish this by starting conversations within communities to identify their needs and desires. Our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.
