I've had the privilege of working with UPI Education for over 4 years in multiple consulting roles and directing capacities. I have enjoyed every experience created to serve our youth. I continue to love educating young women entering the business and STEM worlds to embrace their inner-strengths and talents, branching out into more diverse roles as they graduate from college. In my time with UPI I have come to nurture some fine young people through mentoring programs, and have had the honor of working with a switched on Board of Directors. I cannot speak any higher of UPI Education, and Frank Crump. This expanding team of professionals are my growing family. Thank you!

I met Frank Crump several years ago. At that point, I started paying attention to UPIs events, articles and their presence in the community. It occurs to me that they are doing the right things for education and for young people. I hope that their presence continues to expand in South and West Phoenix.

I have served as a member of the Unified Progress International Education, Inc. (UPI) Advisory Board for several years, and in those years, I have watched UPI grow and transform itself into an organization always reaching for the top of the spear, always looking to improve its goals and mission in serving the needs of schools, parents and communities where students at risk are coached, nurtured and taught life skills necessary to keep them focused on the goal of education, citizenship and success. UPI is not just another name supporting the same institutional principles of the day. It is unique and stand apart from the herd.

If you have considered the changes that would make America great through the enlightenment of its youth who are at risk throughout our great Nation then think of a non-profit organization that has engineered a program to offensively engage in a win-win solution with youths, parents, schools and colleges within the our communities nationwide to teach our youths life skills that are necessary to launch them onto the road to being productive, responsible, self-motivated and successful while looking ahead to take their place as future leaders in a ever changing dynamic society that will continue to shape their lives as they enter into adulthood. Unified Progress International Education Inc. is one such organization. It's leadership is strong, connected and committed. UPI......take the challenge.

I was homeless and charity saved me and without help. I would not have reach the success that I achieved. UPI is the greatest achievement in higher education that has been developed in the past 20 years.

The mentoring program provided by UPI was phenomenal!! My students were excited to work with Ghazi Muhammad every week. It was an added bonus for Mr. Dwayne Baker to donate laptops for my students!! Thank you Frank Crump, your organization has had a positive impact on the lives of my students and our entire Create Academy community.

I have known Frank Crump, Founder of UPI for many years having met through my Mentor, a LIFELONG friend of Mr. Crump. We have consulted on various projects and developed a bond taking our friendship to the next level. Frank has the drive and initiative to continue to lead us at UPI to make the organization relevant and have the impact on our most important resource our children. As Chairman of Peace In The Hood in Cleveland, Ohio we take a direct approach to youth through gang intervention, the most violent youth among us. It is important to me to involve my time and money with UPI simply because UPI is the solution for the children, especially those left out at the bottom of the list. Just ask the children about UPI!

I have been a member on the Board of Advisor since late 2013. I currently continue to serve on the Board and also as an Executive Management team member, providing the company with my expertise in branding and social enterprise. I believe in UPI's mission, to build a future for our children and youth that they too can share in, and be proud of their involvement. We're shattering the glass ceiling imposed upon our youth by society, their histories, their families and their stereotypes. We're working together, united alongside our partners, to create new pathways for our youth to walk, give them hope, show them the way, and to give them the tools to be MORE, do MORE, pay forward MORE. I am honored to be on this great team of like-minded people and businesses, all sharing the same dream. Thank you.
