To create peace through the children of Northern Ireland, where generations of adults have failed.The mission of the Ulster Project is based on a simple idea of sharing experiences. Northern Irish Catholics and Protestant teenagers are hosted by American families of the same religion and with a teenager of the same age and gender. These Christian based potential leaders from Northern Ireland and the United States build immediate friendships to provide a safe and trusting atmosphere. The teens meet almost daily in different churches to discuss the troubles facing the teens in their homes, schools and churches and to teach new ways around the prejudices and stereotypes that contribute to the violence often found in Northern Ireland. These meetings are performed by counselors, teachers and facilitators that organize the activities to ensure participation from all teens.
