    Overview

    Tuesday's Children is a non-profit family service organization that has made a long term commitment to every individual impacted by the events of September 11, 2001 and more recently those who have been impacted by terrorist incidents worldwide.

    Project COMMON BOND is a program that brings together young adults, ages 15-20, from around the world who share a ‘common bond’ — the loss of a family member due to an act of terrorism, violent extremism, or war.

    Launched in 2008, Project COMMON BOND has created an international community of nearly 800 youth from 31 countries. Project COMMON BOND participants engage in a dialogue of healing and community-building activities that enhance interpersonal communication and conflict negotiation skills, promote dignity, and empower them as agents for positive change in their lives and communities. Each summer, new Project COMMON BOND participants attend a summer symposium focused on global leadership activities, peace building and negotiation, skill building, and collaborative and therapeutic arts - music, drama, movement and sports.
