Calling all young, ambitious Kitimat youth

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards North awaits!

If you are between 19 and 30 years old and have leadership experience or potential, the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards North program is for you.

This amazing event is funded by Rotarians and sponsoring Rotary Clubs across the north who will pay the full cost of participation.

Thousands of young people worldwide take part in this program, which enables young people to debate issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improve leadership and communication skills, understand conflict resolution, learn about businesses and institutions and meet Rotarians, while also having fun and making friends.

RYLA also provides young adults with the opportunity to refine skills and explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders.

So, if you’re willing to participate in a group and enjoy sharing new experiences with others, the Rotary Club of Kitimat is accepting applicants for this year’s program to be held in Prince George from August 25 to 28.

For more information and application forms call Kitimat Rotarian Meghan Marshall at 250-639-6165.
