Up With People to reopen office in Tucson

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A special program that started in Tucson has exciting news to share today.  Up With People is reopening an office here in town.

The official announcement will come later today, that they will be opening an office yet again in Tucson.

This is a big deal for them since the study abroad program was founded in Tucson back in the 1960's, but they haven't had an office here since the 1990s. 

Even without an office the program has always continued here. 

Up With People have a partnership with the University of Arizona and many host families here in town.  Their goal is to unite the world through service and music.  That is one of the many reasons why Up With People felt it was time to have an official office again, here in the city where it all began.

Today they are announcing their return and future plans.

It is all being kept under wraps until the press conference, later this afternoon.  Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will be hosting it at the historic Fox Theatre at 4 p.m.
