This morning Ric Williams provided an overview of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) for the club.
The District 7070 RYLA program, “Leadership Begins With Me”, provides an opportunity for the participants to get to know themselves better and to cultivate the respect and trust of others.  They are able to identify their own leadership skills and determine ways to make more effective use of their resources.  Their enthusiasm and technique is brought back to the community from which the participants were sponsored, and thus impacts on the young people being influenced by these youthful leaders.  RYLA is a life-changing experience for young people aged 19 - 25.
Ric is the District 7070 Chair of the Rotary youth Leadership Awards.  Ric is a member of the Rotary District 7070 advisory council, and a member of the Rotary Club of Toronto.
