“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.”

When it was time to build a community by the people and for the people, some waited and some acted among the First Builders.

United People Global (UPG) is proud to acknowledge those who stand among the First Builders. On this page, you can verify the names of members of this community of First Builders. Please check again soon as we continue to develop functionality on this site.

There are many stars in the UPG community and all of them play an important role in building towards our mission to encourage and enable people to make the world a better place. The First Builders lay the foundations that enable other people to make their own contribution, in their own way. We hope that you join us and that you find your own place among the stars in our community.
