2018 RYLA Experience
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
      effective leadership
   * 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

Deputy Administrator for the City of Wasilla.
Deputy Administrator for the City of Wasilla.

Lyn Carden was not born in Alaska, but the military sent her family here three different times, thus solidifying Wasilla was the place for her! Lyn has been around the world, working in many different fields and living in many different geographical locations. One thing is for certain - Wasilla is home!

For many years, Lyn was the CEO of the Greater Wasilla Chamber of Commerce, which provided her the chance to become more connected to her community. Whether it was past media curiosity and the eyes of the world on Wasilla, or facilitating the largest July 4th parade in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley year-after-year, she loves what she does. Over the years, she has had the honor to serve the United States during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and has staffed the office of the Wasilla House Representative during the 28th Legislative Session. Lyn enjoys working with the citizens of the City of Wasilla to help create a great place to live, work and play.
