Shamrock Option

From The President

November, 2014 Posted By: Jennifer Fortson 

October is swiftly drawing to a close--it seems like our 2014 teens just left, and already we’re gearing up for 2015! Fundraisers are being scheduled, recruiting events are taking place, and Ken Simon is wondering what he’s gotten himself into by volunteering to coordinate activities. ;-) We’re extremely fortunate to have such a hard-working Board and core group of volunteers; under their leadership UPATX has earned a reputation as an efficient, organized, and active Project.

Every year we rely on past Host Teens/Families and other Project supporters to help us create a strong foundation for the structure of the summer to come. Please consider what gifts—whether of time, talents, or financial support—you might be able to offer. As always, we especially cherish your prayers and encouragement! It’s a big undertaking, but we know it will be worth it in the lives of our teens.

If you’re interested in getting more involved (or know someone who might be), please contact any Board member or drop me an email! We’d love to have you along with us as we start building toward a landmark 2015.

Sincerely, Jennifer Fortson UPATX 2015 President

Preparations have already begun for the 2015 Ulster Project in Arlington! We depend on all our volunteers to make it a successful, life-changing summer for our Visiting and Host Teens and Families. Please consider how you might be able to help…

TEENS: We are now accepting applications for Host Teens/Families for the 2015 Project Year! Build peace in your city and abroad, earn community service hours, make new friends, and have the time of your life doing it! In order to be eligible, Host Teen applicants must be 14 years of age by June 15, 2015, and not yet 17 years of age prior to August 1, 2015. Application forms are located under the “Forms” tab at the top of this page. For any further information, contact David Chatman and Michelle Hennessy at: We look forward to meeting you!

PROJECT COUNSELORS: Our Counselors are an integral part of completing a successful Project. Young adults (over age 21) who wish to help lead our Ulster Project teens and can make a five-week commitment in July are encouraged to apply. Click on the “Forms” tab at the top of this page, then fill out and submit the Counselor Application (PDF) form. Please contact any UPATX Board member or email with any questions. VOLUNTEERS: The Ulster Project (Arlington) has earned an international reputation as an active, high-quality Project and it wouldn’t be possible without our corps of dedicated, generous volunteers! Every year, volunteers take on such tasks as soliciting donations, fundraising assistance, activity planning and chaperoning, assisting with communications and social media, providing supplies, cooking and clean-up, serving as venue organizers and liaisons with our partner churches and community organizations, and so much more. Volunteers provide critical support our July slate of roughly 65-70 activities for Teen and Host Family participants--if you have a desire to serve, we have a place for you! For more information about how you can get involved, contact Board member and Activities coordinator Ken Simon at, or 2015 Project president Jennifer Fortson at

Ulster Project College Scholarships Continue!

Saturday, October 5, 2014 Posted By: Jen 

For the second year, UPA is proud to announce that it will continue to offer two (2) $1000 college scholarships for one host Boy and one Host girl for each Project Year (as was initiated for the first time in the 2013 Project Year). There are no restrictions for the use of the awarded scholarship, and it can be applied to tuition, books, and/or living expenses at any college or university of your choice. For each Project Year, the scholarships will be awarded 2 years after your participation in the July Project (i.e., for most Host teens, this will mean during your Senior year of High School.) As formulated under current guidelines, the interested Teen applicant must complete four requirements for scholarship eligibility. These requirements are:

  • (1) Submit ALL required Project year application paperwork by the website-published due date each year (typically January 15th--prior to the beginning of current year's Project in late June/ early July)
  • (2) Draft and submit a one-page essay (guidelines to be given to each Host Teen during the Project year) within 4 weeks after the conclusion of your respective Project year
  • (3) Ensure that your Counselors for your Project Year have completed their evaluation of your Project behavior/contributions, within 4 weeks after the conclusion of your respective Project year
  • (4) Attend an interview with the UPA Board of Directors in the February-April timeframe of your Senior year in High School.
For any further clarification, please submit any requests for information about the College Scholarships to: UPATX President submitted no later than January 15th. If you are selected to participant in the Project, all other details for eligibility will be shared with you at your first Orientation Meeting.
