Leadership summer camp for teens offered

Teens entering grades 10 to 12 who want to make a difference in their community are invited to apply to the Project RESPECT leadership development institute summer camp. The camp is conducted by Rhode Island for Community & Justice, with scholarship support from New England Gas Company, the Rhode Island Senate, and individual donors.

Project RESPECT brings young people together for a week to experience the challenges and rewards of leading and community building among people of diverse backgrounds. Youths

share the richness of their experience, learn to counter bias and prejudice, and build skills in communication, collaboration, and conflict resolution.

The camp will run Saturday, June 24, through Thursday, June 29, at Camp Aldersgate in North Scituate.

Applications are available on the RICJ Web site, www.ricj.org, or by calling Sarath Suong, Project RESPECT co-director, at 467-1717, ext. 103. The cost of the program is $500. Scholarships are available. Applications are due by June 12.
