Recently, the Kemptville Rotary club was pleased to have RYLA participant Kira Schiissler present on her experience at this outstanding leadership camp. The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is designed for students who are already leaders in their schools and who would like to sharpen their leadership skills. Kemptville Rotary sponsors up to two students for this camp which is held in May of each year.
Kira explained to us how the 3 day event was structured and described the exercises and activities involved. She also told us how the camp had changed her with respect to her ability to pursue her goals. Kira clearly emerged from this camp as a more confident and forward looking person. She followed up with a great Q&A session.
