District 7790
September 14th -16th, 2018
Adventure Bound Caratunk, Maine

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards provides you with an opportunity to sponsor someone in your club or community to “learn the ropes” of leadership. When your club sponsors a RYLA participant, you have the potential to expand membership in your club, gain exposure in your community and contribute to the personal development of a member of your community. 

The program is targeted for the young adult who is entering the job force or in the job force beyond entry level but not in a management role. RYLA participants are also exposed to val­ues that Rotarians deem essential for those who hold leadership roles: ethical behavior, integrity of character, and a commitment to community service. RYLA in District 7790 is unique! Since we are a bi-lingual district, attendees will be exposed to two cultures, overcome a language barrier and build friendships across the border.

RYLA gives awardees an opportunity to:

• Develop leadership skills • Increase self-confidence & self-esteem • Meet community leaders and mentors • Gain exposure to a variety of issues and people • Learn about Rotary International (and potentially join your club!) and MAKE LIFELONG MEMORIES!

The date for this year’s program is September 14th - 16th, 2018. The program takes place at Adventure Bound Caratunk, Maine. Registration will start at 11:00am.  We will provide lunch before the program begins promptly at 1:00pm.

Cost per person: $300.00 (US)

This includes lodging, 7 meals (3 lunches, 2 breakfasts & 2 dinners), the leadership program, fun & challenging activities and a world-class white water rafting adventure. The candidate must be between the ages of 21 and 35. This experience has numerous physical and mental challenges, which test logic, communication skills, encourage teamwork and enables the individual to build confidence and overcome personal obstacles. 

Please return your registration form & payment to me before August 30th, 2018

This is necessary to ensure final counts and prompt payment to Adventure Bound. Once I have the candidate’s information, a welcome packet with additional information will be sent to the candidate to include an itinerary and list of items to bring for the weekend.
