District 6380's premier teen leadership training program is back for 2018.  The RYLA Committee is proud to announce the RYLA 2018 is scheduled for Friday, April 20th through April 22nd.  This year's program will be held at Camp Copneconic in Fenton, MI.  
Think of the change that we can make in your communities if every club sent at least two people to RYLA 2018.  Make sure that your club considers sending at least two people to this life-changing program.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program sponsored by Rotary. At RYLA, over 120 high school students (grades 9th-11th) from Michigan and southwest Ontario come together with Rotarians for a 3-day camp and participate in presentations, activities, and workshops. Some of the topics covered during this weekend include: leadership fundamentals and ethics; communication skills, problem solving and conflict management; and community and global citizenship.  In-bound Exchange Students are also strongly encouraged to attend.
Activities at RYLA include team building activities such as high ropes courses, giant swing, and zip lines, as well as group exercises that promote & define leadership, ethics, problem solving, communications, and citizenship.
Registration materials will be available on the RYLA page at and before Feb. 1.  Materials to begin your club's recruiting efforts are available now.
If you have any questions, please contact RYLA Chairman, Jim Adams, at or (248) 330-4449.
