Focus: Community and Education.
Performing Life began as a nonprofit organization set up to help youth who are working and/or living on the streets of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Today our mission is to empower street youth by teaching them performing and visual arts as productive skills for avoiding drugs and delinquency while improving the economic well-being of both them and their families. Performing Life also helps youth establish savings accounts and develop small businesses for self-sufficiency.
We are always in search of new volunteers. Performing Life is a young and growing organization which gives volunteers the opportunity to bring their own ideas to the table, developing our projects and making a real impact with the youth and their families.
Costs & Benefits
