The Ultimate Peace Catalyst Program connects individuals and projects around the world who share our vision of peace-building through Ultimate Frisbee. By sharing our resources and providing a centralized location for publicity and communication, we are building a global network of Ultimate Peace ambassadors.
Ultimate Peace ventured outside of the Middle East for the first time Nov. 19-23, 2011. Veteran Ultimate Peace coaches, Loriana Berman and David Morgenroth, led the program with a team of American coaches and Yuval Zolotushko (UP coach from Israel) in the city of Medellin, Colombia. Five days of clinics for approximately 40 coaches from Colombia, Mexico, and Argentina and around 200 Colombian youth players focused on promoting the five values of Ultimate Peace: Mutual Respect, Integrity, Non-Violence, Friendship, and Fun.
This has been a project a long time in the making, and we are very proud it has come to fruition. There is plenty of room to grow, and this program was truly just the beginning, for Colombia and other potential sites around the world. Ultimate Peace is grateful to PAUC organizers, Inder, AJUC, ACUM, WFDF, and our other generous donors for making this dream become a reality.
