As you may be aware every April our district coordinates Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp.  RYLA camp (April 6-8, 2018) is an intensive 3-day training program for High School Sophomores and Juniors that helps participants think critically about important issues and share ideas with talented peers, learn how to coordinate and lead community service projects, discuss the importance of good governance and civil society to the world, and finally, learn to think globally and explore issues that transcend national and cultural boundaries. 
To make the camp a success we seek students from diverse backgrounds throughout the district.  Diversity refers to any student who is interested in local and global issues and whose participation in this program would help expand and add to their current experiences and perspectives. We seek your help to spread the word about this amazing opportunity and to encourage students you believe would benefit from this experience to apply.  This year we are excited for several new activities including a tree planting with the Arbor Day Foundation, and several new engaging activities and speakers that are sure to a success.  Our District Governor Dr. Tom Cardwell has sent a letter with brochures to all the club presidents in the district, however, and I wanted to let you know that if you need more materials please feel free to email me and I will send you additional recruiting materials.
