Teens who lost kin to terror unite at Mass. camp
NEWBURY, Mass. (AP) -- More than 70 teenagers and young adults from around the world are participating in a Massachusetts summer camp for the loved ones of terrorist victims.
Project Common Bond is part of the New York-based nonprofit Tuesday's Children, which serves people directly affected by the Sept. 11 attacks.
Tuesday's Children executive director Terry Sears said Wednesday it's a way for the children of Sept. 11 victims to connect with children from around the world who've suffered similar losses.
The curriculum design comes in part from a mediation and negotiation program at Harvard Law School. It teaches conflict resolution and leadership skills campers can take home to do projects that make a difference in their communities.
The program is in its fifth year. This year it brings together campers aged 15 to 20 at Governor's Academy in Newbury, just north of Boston.
