Do you know of any outstanding high school students who could benefit from developing their leadership skills? If so, encourage them to apply for sponsorship by your Rotary Club for one of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) retreats in Spring 2017 (March 9-12 and April 6--9). Student feedback on this experience is always outstanding. Take a look at this video to get a feel for RYLA. A program brochure and application packet can be downloaded with the links on the story page (click on headline above).
