Ulster Project seeks host families
Wednesday, April 14, 2010
ARCHDIOCESE — The Cincinnati Ulster Project is currently seeking area families with teenagers interested in hosting a teen from Northern Ireland this July.
The Ulster Project is a peace initiative aimed at bringing Irish Catholic and Protestant teens together for a month of social and service activities in a safe environment where they become fast friends in spite of political differences. It also aims at fostering tolerance, understanding and friendship among future leaders.
Teen hosts will spend four weeks with 23 other young people (12 Irish and 12 American hosts in all), in a variety of activities, all of which are free. A sampling of activities includes Kings Island, and a Reds’ game, as well as service projects and leadership activities. Participants will also receive more than 30 hours of community service toward their school’s service requirements.
