Up with People is a unique semester-long program that combines elements of International Education, Service Learning, and Performing Arts. Our vision is to inspire young people to make a difference in their world.
Up with People participants come from approximately 15-20 countries, and travel together around the world as an international cast, visiting a different community each week. Each week-long visit includes multiple community service projects, as well as educational tours, speakers, and lectures. At the end of each week, participants put on a two-hour musical show.
Up with People is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
The Admissions Advisor helps drive enrollment and retention of participants for the Up with People program. Admissions Advisors are the primary contacts for Up with People’s applicants and parents. Applicants are assigned to Admissions Advisors based on their geographic location, and typically remain assigned to their advisor for the lifetime of their application. The Admissions Advisor is responsible to matriculate students into the program, using enrollment strategies and sales efforts to drive departmental goals.
The Admissions Advisor also supports administrative functions in the department, including scholarships and financial aid, tracking and reporting of participant status’, database management, and other duties as assigned. This is a full-time, salaried position with full company benefits, and functions as an integral part of the Up with People Admissions team, which together is responsible for meeting worldwide admissions targets set for each semester.
