Ultimate Peace – Experiential Educator
Ultimate Peace and All of Us
Ultimate Peace is a non-profit that uses the sport of Ultimate Frisbee to build bridges of trust, friendship, and leadership to Arab Israeli, Jewish Israeli, and Palestinian youth. During the year there are weekly practices in communities across the region as well as tournaments that bring youth together to play with and against youth from other villages and cities. In the summer there is a week long summer camp for all the youth in the program and many high level American coaches and players come to coach the Middle Eastern youth.This program brings a taste of UP magic right to your camp, bringing two graduates from our Leaders in Training program, an Israeli Arab and a Jewish Israeli. Participants will learn a little about Ultimate Frisbee, a little about Ultimate Peace, and receive an introduction to UP’s philosophy on how it’s addressing the conflict. This programming is great for all ages, including counselors in training and staff members. Our Jewish and Arab Israeli coaches will be able to show campers what real Tikkun Olam is, as well as loving thy neighbor.

Jacob and his team were highly professional and clearly passionate about the work they did. They invited me to participate in one of the sessions, and I was left wishing they were full time members of our staff! Their games were excellent, and the teaching they did in association with the games was phenomenal.
