ABOUT VWB

Voices Without Borders, a non-profit 501c3, was founded in Petoskey in 2009. Its mission is to promote, support, and sponsor choral music, dance and other related activites for young people in our schools and communities throughout greater northern Michigan and to offer similar opportunities for children from around the world.
