What you can do:
Ulster Project Utah is committed to identifying promising teen leaders from Utah and Northern Ireland and nurturing their growth as peacemakers by providing a safe, but challenging environment to learn the skills necessary to unite people whose differences divide them.
Over the past 30+ years Ulster Project Utah has hosted 12 teens each July from Omagh, Northern Ireland. Over 300 young people from Utah and Northern Ireland have participated in a variety of activities designed to open and encourage channels of communication. Open communication leads to understanding, tolerance, trust and reconciliation and creates an environment of friendship where the seeds of long-term change are planted.
Over the past 5 years the Ulster Project has experienced a steady increase in expenses. If additional funding is not found, the Project in Utah could end in 3 years.
Help is needed now. Help the Utah Ulster Project continue this important work. Any amount is appreciated and will help enormously.

We also have a need for material donations. Remember, we are caring for 28 teens every day for a month. Here is a list of some of the items we could use:
- Lots of paper goods – cups, plates, bowls, napkins, plastic utensils, Ziplock bags, foil, paper towels, Clorox wipes, any kind of picnic supplies
- Powdered lemonaide or other types of drink mixes, even hot chocolate for the campouts nights
- Ice! We carry coolers just about every day for the kid’s lunches and a 5-gallon container of cold water. We go through a LOT of ice on hot summer days.
- Misc. first aid items like bandaids, bug bite remedies, Tylenol, Pepto-bismol, etc.
- Lip balm or Chapstick, aloe gel products
- Snacks and drinks of all types. The kids usually bring their lunches every day, but teenagers are ALWAYS hungry!
- Bug spray
- Sunscreen – LOTS of sunscreen. The N. Irish kids tend to be quite fair skinned. They call it suncream and we go through boatloads of it.
- Paper – white and colored, pens, markers – the kids all write notes to each other at the end of the Project.
- Flashdrives – We send each teen home with a flashdrive of photos and a slideshow.
