Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)

“Last April one of the students who attended Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) at Camp Kitaki stated that being at the camp helped him get to know himself better and understand what it means to be a leader.  Students also report enjoy meeting peers from across the state of Nebraska and Iowa (as well as internationally), and making life-long friendships.”
‘The Deadline for students to apply for this incredible opportunity is quickly approaching (March 1st).  The camp is scheduled for April 6-8, 2018.  This intensive 3-day training program for High School Sophomores and Juniors helps participants think critically about important issues and share ideas with talented peers, learn how to coordinate and lead community service projects, discuss the importance of good governance and civil society to the world, and finally, learn to think globally and explore issues that transcend national and cultural boundaries. This year there will be several new activities and opportunities for students to become engaged, including a tree planting with the National Arbor Day Foundation.  They will also be taking time to talk to students about different scholarship opportunities available through Rotary.  This really is a unique opportunity for your students skills that will serve them well in high school and beyond.
