Upstanders—Building Homes. Building Lives


A former addict creates a construction program that helps kids rebuild not only their own lives, but the lives of others.

After spending his teenage years in and out of jail, Robert Clark turned his life around. Now he’s committed himself to helping the at-risk youth of Newark do the same, by leading them in building homes for poor families.

Upstanders is a Starbucks Original Series celebrating ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities. These stories of humanity remind us that we all have the power to make a difference.
