Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA), June 8-10, 2018, is a unique opportunity for high school students to gain insight and knowledge in life and leadership skills. The academy features professionally developed curriculum, exciting guest leaders, small group problem solving and self reflection which lead to enhanced leadership skills. Based on their academy experience, many graduates change their career objectives or educational plans. District 7040 Rotary Clubs may sponsor one to three students (ages 15-17) to attend this Youth Leadership Academy that gives them a memorable and potentially life-changing experience.
Students will engage with other high school students from Quebec, Ontario and Northern New York, providing them with a unique opportunity to learn about different communities and cultures. They also learn about themselves, their values, as well as having fun. Students come away from the experience having developed a program for implementation in their school or community and many new friendships.
