Then check out the Ulster Project!
Ulster Project Cincinnati brings youth from Northern Ireland to Cincinnati homes from June 26th to July 26th, 2014. Northern Irish teens and their American teen hosts participate in an action-packed four-week activities program designed to encourage leadership and foster peace. Involvement in the program is at no cost to Cincinnati area teens.
The entire group of teens from Cincinnati and Northern Ireland participate in daily activities that involve service, leadership, and fun. Examples include:
Mathew 25 Ministries
Loving Arms Daycare
Purpose of the Ulster Project
Northern Ireland is a region divided because of religious differences and a struggle for power. Families in Northern Ireland live in a very extreme society where neighborhoods, sports teams, and schools are divide along differing religious and social lines – Catholics on one end, and Protestants on the other.
The goal of the Ulster Project is to bring both Protestant and Catholic teens together in a safe environment to discuss their differences and begin finding ways to connect. It’s a very separated society in Northern Ireland, but the U.S. is considered neutral ground, so teens come here to work with Cincinnati teens to meet and grow with each other and leave as friends.
