New Captains

Thank you for applying to lead a new Community of Champions!

United People Global (UPG) is a community that encourages and enables people to participate in making the world a better place. To do this we manage a network of independent and local communities of people who apply UPG’s mission and methods to tackle challenges within their communities. We call these “Communities of Champions”. And there is an opportunity for you to apply to establish a Community of Champions in your city or community. As a Captain you will work with others locally and be part of a global family.

It is true that we live in troubled times: we live in a period where many around the world people feel forgotten, unheard and as though they have no ability to participate in activities that improve their lives and their communities. It is also true that positive action is the best response to this situation.

Each UP Community is a non-partisan, non-religious group within a local community that is focused on empowering people to participate in the future of their communities. UP Communities contribute to resolving local challenges by collaborating with relevant stakeholders in a positive and non-confrontational manner. Each UP Community is composed of people from all walks of life and reflects the diversity of the community that the UP Community serves. The work of all Communities of Champions is facilitated by UPG, an independent not-for-profit organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Do you identify with this? Do you think you have what it takes to lead a UPG Community of Champions?

Then let's get started!

Eligibility: Those who are serious about driving change in their community will be accepted. Everyone in a Community of Champions must fulfil the criteria to be a UPG Champion. Minimum age of every Champion is 18. Please learn more about UPG Champions here:
