It has been a pleasure to work with this organization. Their community involvement with youth has been thoughtful and heartfelt, while maintaining an organized business perspective.
As a member of the Board of Advisors for many years, I am a big believer in the mission fo UPI. Helping to mentor, guide and steer our at risk youth is one of the best ways to ensure a better future for them and for our communities. UPI is making an impact and I am proud to be associated with their efforts!
I have been involved with UPI as an Advisor for nearly 10 years. I am a big believer in UPI's mission to help disadvantaged youth by giving them mentors, motivation and on the right track to educational and life success. I am also a big supporter of Frank Crump, founder of UPI, a man of vision and integrity whom I have now known for over 30 years.
Very unique program for individuals and the community at large. Education and self-empowerment are two main keys to success and UPI does it better than any other similar organizations that I've come in contact with in over 30 years as a community organizer, educator, and activist.
UPI Education continues to excel and deliver with modern contemporary services, that are critically needed in the undersreved and disadvantaged communities.
It's my sincere hope that UPI continues to recieve strong consideration and sponsorship support, that will continue to benefit many for years to come.

I have had the honor to serve as an advisor to UPI for the last 8 years. During that time I have witnessed their leader, Frank Crump, start UPI with virtually nothing and through sheer guts and determination build it into a powerful organization. Frank has overcome many obstacles and through the years has been able to attract other professionals to assist with expanding the vision of UPI to provide Life Skills Solutions™ to youths that need kindness, love, understanding, and guidance. Frank is a man "who speaks softly and carries a big stick". I would give him and UPI my strongest endorsement.
UPI has worked relentlessly with inner city youth to instill a positive mental attitude, strong work ethic and to strive to achieve their goals.
My experience has been very good with the UPI organization. They are responsive and strategic with serving the education needs of the community, most importantly the needs of children. I look forward to doing great things for under-served children with UPI in the not to distant future and beyond.
I am so happy to have the opportunity to serve the community under the auspices of UPI. UPI Education has brought about a no-nonsense approach to education in our community. Our children have a practical approach to learn about themselves and their family and how to be a successful citizen and powerful member of our society.
I am excited about the lives that UPI is touching. As a team member, I couldn't be more proud. Our youth are our future and we must be involved with them. Thanks Frank for your vision.

UPI is a great organization aimed at supporting youth and the community. The Life skills training has help improve the lives of many of the participants of the program. Frank Crump and Team are doing a great job!
I served as a facilitator for the U PI curriculum at Create Academy Charter School. It was loved by staff and stufents alike. The impact on the students was nothing short of phenomenal
The President has never allowed me to read any of the curriculum. So I have no idea whether what is being taught is relevant to what children need to know.
Rather than just take somebody's word for it, I would like to see the details for myself. Why the President has chosen not to send a copy of the curriculum to me has never been explained. And frankly, that seems rather suspicious.
