About This Activity

Ulster Project Delaware (UPD): Each year, UPD brings teenagers from Northern

Ireland to a strife-free environment in the Wilmington area to promote long-time peace

between Catholics and Protestants. During the month-long project each July, the teens

and adult leaders live with host families with teens of a similar age. Tolerance and

understanding are fostered, stereotypes are dissolved, and lifetime friendships are

formed. Since 1976, UPD has changed the lives of 764 Catholic and protestant teens

and 148 adult leaders from Northern Ireland and their American families.
