RYLA kids do well in Gibsons

Kitimat youths Delany Ribeiro, Brodie Chartrand and Kaitlin Ferreira were at the Hirsch Creek Golf Club on May 16 to present a report back on their experiences at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp in Gibsons in April.

Rotary Club of Kitimat New Generations director Cheryl Rumley said the three were last year selected by the club for the all-expenses paid trip to attend the camp, where they joined a hundred other young people from grades 10 to 12 in B.C.

After completing their presentations they were handed Rotary Youth Leadership awards for their service, leadership and citizenship in their school and community. RYLA is Rotary’s leadership training and personal development program for young people aged 14 to 30. Those who attend RYLA learn valuable leadership and career skills, build self-confidence, discuss current ethical and social issues and meet active community leaders – all while having lots of fun.

The Rotary Club of Kitimat has sponsored many youth to attend RYLA in its sixty years of providing service in Kitimat.
