If You Are an Alumni of UP…
Thank you for playing a role in moving UP forward and you’ll be excited to learn what’s new.
A Program for Life: UP Year-Round – The UP Year-Round program is designed to engage youth through middle and high school, and well into adulthood. Now running throughout the school year, UP offers all 14 communities a continuum of activities from September to June. Community team practices, league games, large quarterly tournaments, and special events enable ongoing engagement. Camp UP, held in July, is a culmination of the year’s activities, and its full immersion approach is a major highlight and catalyst for increasing year-round participation.
“Leadership in Training” (LIT) (previously called CIT) bolsters teen involvement through high school. Ultimate Peace has worked hard to build the LIT program, a comprehensive 3-year Leadership-in-Training program for Middle Eastern teens. Our vision was to create groundbreaking developmental training that would enhance and enrich the high school years of participants, while preparing them to be future leaders and change-makers within Ultimate Peace, inside their communities, and in the Middle East. The program is thriving and is now training its 5th year cohort, with an average of 15 teens in each one. A new employment program is being designed to provide internships and ultimately hire LIT’s as coaches, staff, and administrators.
