Are you the right person for RYLA?

Posted: March 14 - 2014

The Nelson Rotary Clubs are seeking applicants for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards for youth between 18-25, married or single, who have graduated from high school and have demonstrated leadership potential. The award sponsors attendance at an intensive, one-week leadership training program (RYLA), which will be held at Selkirk College in Castlegar from June 28-July 5, 2014.

The program incorporates, through a number of excellent presenters, challenging small and large group work and interaction with approximately 50 young adults from Rotary District 5080. Included are such topics as Group Dynamics, Characteristics of Effective Leaders, Ethical Frameworks and development of Personal Mission Statements. Testimonials from former RYLArians state “It was a phenomenal week of self-discovery, growth and learning about many skills important to every aspect of life.”
