The word that comes to my mind as I type these few words this morning before sunrise is..."beacon". As in Beacon of Light in an environment so desperately in need of it. To give "light" in the manner and methodology as this organization is Doing, is to illuminate the minds and the hopes and the visions of so many whom other wise would be trapped in the darkness of a world too few know or care to know about. I'm grateful to have discovered the WORK of Unified Progress International and as is inevitable, as more and more reflect the light...more minds,visions and hopes will be illuminated. In this moment I speak for transformation of lives through the WORK of United Progress International ....and my word will not return to me void.

I worked with UPI recently and I had a chance to view their leadership program dealing with young teens first hand. Their 2015 summer youth camp was very effective with their kids who participated in the program and their progress and attitudes reflected the leadership of UPI's outstanding mentors.

Great program and recommend to any family seeking to send their kids on a positive path of making right choices!!

I've known Mr. Frank Crump for many years and he is an outstanding gentleman of distinctive talent. Above reproach, Mr. Crump has consistently and conscientiously striven for excellence in whatever endeavor he has undertaken.

A passionate advocate for functional families and harmonious communities, Mr. Crump has made it his life's work to go beyond the call of duty and lead those prepared to follow to new heights of knowledge and understanding. With Mr. Crump as the helmsman of Unified Progress Education Inc., investors and students alike can rest assured they will be experiencing sustained growth and mutual benefits for years to come.

I was only introduced to UPI within the last 8 months and I have been impressed from day-one with the level of professionalism and commitment that this organization brings to each meeting and to their collaborative efforts. UPI is being intentional to make connections with industry and all levels of educations to find ways in which to ulitmately impact youth and their families! There is a definite synergy within this organization and while they are focused and bring research to the table they never forget that their primary purpose is to give kids hope and to help every child see that there is a purpose for their life...sometimes no one told them until they met the UPI staff!
Quality origanization. So proud to watch them grow and engage in our communities.

Over 50 years ago, while at a playground in New Haven, CT, I was a youngster being bullied by a bigger and old person. Out of nowhere emerged a gentleman who unbeknownst to us both would do something that left a lasting impression. You see all we knew about each other is that we had the same first name, "Frank" Big Frank was older and his basketball prowess and scholastic abilities would earn him the distinction of basketball legend.

What Big Frank did in a community park full of people is show that he is the type of person who will not stand by and watch unfairness. No one had to tell him to make a difference he took it upon himself to. For those of you are anticipating what he did he simply punched the bully in the eye. He was a young man of few words but had the courage to do whatever it took.

The act changed my life because it contributed to my growth. Frank brings this same tenacity to UPI.

UPU under the direction of Mr. Frank Crump continues to make a difference is people's lives.

Greatness is not about a tactical sense of execution. Greatness requires having a vision that goes beyond oneself and even beyond the organization. That being said. This is a GREAT program because it is driven by Mr. Frank Crump who has the unique ability to inspire everyone he comes in contact with to make a difference in someone life.

After all he has been doing it for over 50 years!

I have been associated with UPI Education for nine years. I have witnessed the organizations growth and development firsthand with awe and excitement. There are many youth development or life skills programs throughout the country (many of which serve their communities well) UPI's Life Skills Solutions(TM) training program is among the best and in time it's program value will be measured by the number of students who graduate from its course.
