Rotaract, Interact, and RYLA

Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary—and we offer both clubs and programs to help emerging leaders develop their skills. Through these groups, participants strengthen their leadership skills, serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships, and more.

Rotaract

Rotaract brings together people ages 18-30 in universities and communities worldwide to organize service activities, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun. Rotary clubs sponsor them, but Rotaract members manage and fund their clubs independently. Rotaract members work closely with their local Rotary club, and may join after their Rotaract membership ends.

How can I participate in Rotaract? - Facebook - Mat-Su Valley Rotaract

Follow Rotaract on , , , and to see what Rotaract clubs are doing around the world.

Interact - Facebook - Mat-Su Valley Interact

Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.

RYLA - Rotary District 5010  - www.wasillasunriserotary.com - Debbie Bushnell

RYLA 5010 will be held in April 2015 in the Mat-Su Valley

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. While participants can be any age, most events focus on secondary school students, university students, or young professionals. RYLA events are typically 3–10 days long and include presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership fundamentals and ethics
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving and conflict management
  • Community and global citizenship

How can I participate in RYLA? - Facebook District 5010 RYLA

Follow RYLA on to learn about inspirational events happening around the globe. Facebook Mat-Su Valley Rotaract

RYLA participants are nominated by their local Rotary clubs. To learn more about a RYLA event in your area, .

Choose Respect

parnell collage

Many thanks to Governor Parnell for joining us for breakfast this morning and sharing his vision on the administration's "Choose Respect" initiative.

Speaking to a full house this morning the governor challenged groups like ours to continue our efforts to keep the conversation about domestic violence going.  Remember, sometimes a victim only needs someone they can trust to take a step towards getting help.  Our children need to hear that abusing someone else is never acceptable.

 

 
 

Aimee Bushnell

Graduating Senior of Wasilla High

Aimee was awarded a scholarship from WSRC President Dan Kennedy Tuesday night, 5/13/14. 

We are very proud of all she has accomplished with Rotary and the community at large.

Congratulations from all of us at the Wasilla Sunrise Rotary Club!!!

Jason Marvel

The most common reaction to today's presentation was "Wow!"  Jason gave us an overview of the Freedom Writers program, training, goals, and achievements.  A confident and inspirational speaker, it is easy to see Jason is one of the better teachers out there and we are lucky to have him teaching the children of the valley.

His presentation hit upon the difference between Tolerance and Understanding.  It also tied into a discussion on domestic abuse, a large and sensitive problem in the valley.  Jason challenged us to tap into our creativity as Rotary to come up with an action plan for tackling this issue - a thought seconded by our President, Dan Kennedy.

So, fellow Rotarians, what can we do?  How can we help our community address not only the after effects of domestic violence, but more importantly prevent it from occurring?  Very tough questions with difficult answers.  Talk about it, think about, and let's see what we can do to make a difference to fight something that touches too many of us!
