Former DC Breeze captain Glenn Poole will be volunteering this July at Ultimate Peace, a summer camp for disadvantaged youth from Palestinian, Arab Israeli, and Israeli Jewish communities.
With a focus on teamwork, leadership, and personal responsibility, the camp brings together youth who would otherwise never meet due to regional conflict. Currently 14 communities participate in year-round programs: 6 are Arab communities in Israel, 5 are Jewish communities in Israel, and 3 are Palestinian from the West Bank. Of the 300 youth served each year, approximately 25% are Palestinian, 35% Israeli Jews, and 40% Arab Israelis.
Ultimate Peace teaches campers to play ultimate frisbee, helping them learn to resolve disputes through dialogue while building friendships across these divided communities. The camp also provides a positive, educational, multicultural experience that is healthy, enriching, inspiring, and fun for youth from different backgrounds.
The program is supported through tax-deductible donations as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We encourage you to make a donation to support Glenn in promoting peace in the Middle East using the link below:
