Review for Unified Progress International (UPI) Education Inc., Chandler, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had the privilege to work with Mr. Frank Crump and members of his staff the past few years and I can come up with one word that summarizes the vision, mission, objectives, strategy, and programs for UPI Education Inc. "GREAT!"

I am going to zero in on the programs because this is were many companies large and smart, for-profit, and not-for-profit fail to execute their strategy.

It starts with Mr. Frank Crump the president and Founder whose character is reflected in programs that are:

Unified… Working together, leaving no one behind
Progress… Advancing, evolving, pioneering
International… Culturally and ethnically diverse
Education… Facilitating, training, improving

I am a product of Frank's innate ability to educate, inspire, and enlighten "at-risk" youth to strive for greatness. For 22 year, I worked in New Haven, CT and Atlanta, GA, with kids who were once labeled "at-risk", whom are now leaders in their communities.

The Life Skill Solutions™ training program targeting "at-risk" youth does teaches the skills that prepare America’s youth to live as successful citizens; maintaining respect for others including respect for school, college,the workplace and the laws of our society.

The teachers embrace the fact "Great leaders are great teachers." The student see and feel the passion of the instructors as the encourage them to be Great!

Review for Unified Progress International (UPI) Education Inc., Chandler, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
