Quotes by our teens.

“Ulster was a life changing experience – it allowed me to develop life long friends.” Brendan K

“I had the most meaningful summer – I made new friends and had unforgettable experiences.” Faith L

The Ulster Project was a great experience.  I gained new friends from around the Youngstown area and also across the world in Northern Ireland.  I learned how to get along better with different types of people and also how to get to know someone before judging them.  It was easily the best experience of my life.  Every day was something new for an entire month and we were constantly moving around.  Throughout the month we did fun activities, service projects, traveled all over Youngstown and some areas around here and partied.  There was no part of the month that was ever boring or wasted.

In the first two days, we got to know each other.  Every day after that we all knew each other and got along very good together.  Many of the people that hosted a teen in the Ulster Project go and visit them again or have the teen come back to the United States.  By doing the Ulster Project, I formed a life-long relationship with someone that lives on the other side of the world.

The Ulster Project is great.  I can’t say enough about it except that I’m very glad that I did it.  John C
