Are you between 18-24 years old? Involved in your community, wanting to make a difference and/or showing potential as a leader?
Here's encouragement to apply for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards ("RYLA") programme!
I'm a volunteer member of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (District 9940) Leadership Committee and I mentor and coach 18-24 year olds at a significantly discounted rate (or free, depending on circumstances).
From the RYLA 9940 website:
"Our RYLA is a five day residential high-energy programme to develop lower North Island young leaders between the ages of 18 and 24.
Originating in 1959 in Queensland, Australia, RYLA was officially adopted by Rotary International (RI) in 1971. This exciting programme engages Rotary clubs and districts around the world to help the next generation of leaders expand their skills.
The RYLA programme recognises, encourages and educates current and future leaders by offering them this intensive leadership experience. The programme demonstrates Rotary's commitment to developing leaders."
You don't need to be a member of a Rotary club to apply. Register your interest today! :)
