District 6380's premier teen leadership training program is back for 2019.  The RYLA Committee is proud to announce the RYLA 2019 is scheduled for Friday, April 12th through April 14th.  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 2019.  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 as well.
 
 
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 www.rotary6380.org and www.6380youth.org before Feb. 1.  Materials to begin your club's recruiting efforts are available now.
