Share The Music. Spread The L.U.V.
Lift Up Voices Foundation (L.U.V) is a nonprofit organization bringing the gift of music to children and youth in disadvantaged communities.
Our empowering workshops are filled with interactive singing games and activities, songwriting and recording and lots of laughs. We believe music is a universal language that provides children with the gift of self-expression and creativity. L.U.V seeks to provide a cherished memory of good times, as well as boosting the confidence for each child to let their voices be heard long after each workshop experience.
“If you can feel it once, you can feel it again.”

“Together we can L.U.V every child.”Meet the L.U.V Team
UNICEF estimates that there are at least 93 million children with disabilities in the world. 140 million children worldwide are orphans. Homeless youth represent 7% of the total homeless population in the United States. These aren’t just numbers on a page. This is a demographic that we are motivated and determined to reach. We want to provide an experience that these children have never had. One that they will always remember, along with tools they can always use. Our Lift Up Voices workshops are specifically designed for children in need of an escape from their daily hardships.
“We want to bring music into every home.”
Throughout our service in Jamaica, we met inspiring individuals who have come from backgrounds of incredible disadvantage, neglect and poverty. Our work in youth centres and rehabilitation programs have introduced us to children and young adults who face personal issues pertaining to mental health, substance abuse and isolation. Our expertise and background in disability and special education has brought us in contact with children who often experience exclusion from everyday life activities. Few have access to music and incorporate it into their daily lives. Lift Up Voices aims to empower these groups of young people to express themselves, find their voice and experience the joy and exuberance that no child should miss out on.How You Can Help

A huge thanks to the Lift Up Voices Foundation for making our kids feel like stars! With L.U.V, our kids had the chance to try new instruments, showcase singing and dance moves, and even record a couple songs.
