El Sistema Global Campaign

Since 2007, Peace Boat has been working with the Venezuelan youth orchestra system known as ?gEl Sistema,?h inviting young musicians onboard its ship and bringing musical instruments to Venezuela. So far, more than 50 young musicians have traveled with us, and we have delivered more than 300 musical instruments to the El Sistema program. During our visits to Venezuela, Peace Boat participants join cultural exchange programs with the young people of the orchestra, and learn about the achievements of this national music system and the social role that music plays for the youth of Venezuela. El Sistema Global Campaign was formed in 2012 to promote this music education program and its social reach in the countries visited by Peace Boat.
