UPS founder Jim Casey established The UPSFoundation in 1951 with a mission to help build stronger and more resilient communities around the world. Crecer, the UPS Latino business resource group, is doing just that.Founded in 2012, Crecer executes initiatives that demonstrate UPS’ commitment to the engagement and betterment of the Latino community. UPS amplifies its impact by working with local chapters of organizations like National Council of La Raza, ALPFA, the HispanicScholarship Fund, and the Latin American Association. They are currently focusing on three community impact areas:education, volunteerism, and sustainability.In the area of education, Crecer supports Latino conferences and youth mentoring programs. By targeting low-income, at risk Latino youth, they help them engage, evolve, and reach their potential including improving graduation rates and preparing for college.UPS supports volunteerism by creating compelling opportunities for Crecer members and all UPSers to support Latino communities. From 2014 to 2015, Crecer recorded nearly three times more volunteer hours. Their newest effort supports the UPS Sustainability Ambassadors program which seeks to elevate communication and awareness about community needs and the environment. Crecer’s leadership, sponsors, and members are an example of how they create collective impact for Latinos in our community.
