Rotary District 5650 is currently seeking and accepting nominations for Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA). Every April our district coordinates RYLA camp (April 6-8, 2018), an intensive 3-day training program for High School Sophomores and Juniors that 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.

RYLA enables participants to debate issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improve leadership and communications skills, learn about businesses and institutions, and meet Rotarians while having fun and making friends. In addition, RYLA provides participants the opportunity to refine skills and explore pertinent topics with their peers and business professionals. The RYLA experience prepares young people to be leaders in their community, profession, and other facets of everyday life. While there is a nominal fee for participants to attend, sponsoring Rotary clubs pay all the participants’ expenses.

To make the camp a success we seek students from diverse backgrounds throughout our district. Diversity in this context includes any student who is interested in local and global issues and whose participation in this program would help expand their current experiences and perspectives. There is no limit as to how many students can apply as we hope to increase our participant numbers.

For more information about the program please visit: http://rotarydistrict5650.org/SitePage/ryla

Online application is now available HERE. There is no cost associated with the application or the program.

Students will be notified of acceptance by the RYLA District 5650 Chair.

Ryan Sothan is the Outreach Coordinator within the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.  Within his role, he has statewide responsibility for developing and implementing community-based initiatives for educating Nebraskans in the area of Internet Safety.  For students and parents alike, with today’s technology it is more often what we don’t know that has the greatest potential to do us harm.  Ryan’s presentation will raise awareness of youth online safety, including social media use, dangerous apps parents should be on the lookout for, cyberbullying and resources and tools that can guide adults in monitoring youth online behaviors.
