Hello Awesome Rotarians,
We are beginning to organize our Annual English Immersion Camp for adults.
This year it will take place on SATURDAY, APRIL 22nd from about 9:00 to 3:00.
This is a Great HANDS ON, FUN event...no teaching experience necessary...
Volunteers are needed to help with food (pizza/snacks), assistants in the classroom, clean-up, door prizes, DID I say HAVE FUN???
This year we will have a special guest, Shirley Mae Springer Staten who will team up with Kathleen to do a special session using music for all levels. Shirley has a very inspiring and dynamic personality and should be quite fun.
Please reply to this e-mail if you are interested for either the whole day, or part of the day.
Our club recently sponsored our exchange student Zoe, to a day of snowboarding at Alyeska. She wants to share this note with everyone. A great exchange student. If you have not taken time to do something with Zoe, you are missing out!
Hello President Paul,
I just wanted to say thank you to the whole Rotary Club for paying for my Visit in Girdwood.

Each year our District holds a "Rotary Youth Leadership Awards" event. This is a leadership training program that encourages and rewards outstanding young people who want to become better leaders.
RYLA consists of an all-expense paid two and a half-day conference that brings together a special group of young men and women from across Alaska/Yukon to share ideas about becoming better leaders. Action-packed activities, like problem solving games, challenge course, group discussions and team-building activities, help participants build confidence and leadership skills.
RYLA's intent is to encourage students to be more effective leaders. the following topics naturally arise during RYLA activities and discussions:
* Fundamentals of leadership
* Ethics of positive leadership
* Importance of communication skills in
* Conflict management and problem solving
* Rotary's purpose and service to the community
* Building self-esteem and self-confidence
* Elements of community and global citizenship
The event is co-planned by both RYLA Alumni and Rotarians. RYLA Alumni make sure that the program is fun and relevant to their peers. Alumni have innovative ideas that make sure the days are as interactive as possible and that the adults do not talk for too long. They serve as Alumni Leaders and Facilitators at the event - an opportunity some of the 2017 RYLA participants will have in 2018. We believe that the large number of teens that want to return as RYLA Alumni is an excellent indicator that the program holds the right balance of fun and skill building.
All forms, including a Frequently Asked Question sheet and the registration forms for the teens and the chaperones plus the medical release form are located on the AER homepage, under the "download files" right hand section. You can talk to your club President or RYLA committee chair for more information.
SEND US YOUR STUDENT AND WE'LL SEND YOU BACK A LEADER!
