Would you like to help us?
Ulster Project Utah is committed to identifying promising teen leaders from Utah and Northern Ireland. We do this by nurturing their growth as peacemakers through the provision of a safe but challenging environment which allows them to learn the skills necessary to unite people whose differences divide their community.
Over the past 30+ years Ulster Project Utah has hosted 12 teens each July from Omagh,
Northern Ireland and paired them with their American peers from Utah. Over 750 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, trust, tolerance and reconciliation and creates an environment of friendship where the seeds of long-term change are planted.
The Ulster Project is funded in a large part by donations from various foundations and by
generous individual donors. Each year we strive to run the Project with a balanced budget and individual donations are critical in helping us meet this goal.
Would you please consider making a donation – all donations no matter the size are greatly
appreciated – and help us continue the important work of the Ulster Project in years to come.
Also please note that we are a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization.
Grace and Peace,
President, Board of Trustees

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.
