This Tuesday will be the first meeting of 2018 and we have a great line up!
We will be joined by Rylarian Rachel Caulfield and Brother Celestine visiting from Kenya!
Rachel was sponsored by Diamond Creek Rotary to participate in the RYLA program last November along with our Rotary Exchange Student: Lisa Tanaka.
RYLA is an intensive training program that brings together young adults, ages 18 – 30, to further develop character and leadership skills and learn about Rotary. It is an intensive experience-based conference over seven days.
RYLA has the following objectives:
To demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth
To encourage and assist young people in responsible and effective voluntary youth leadership by providing them with a valuable training experience
To foster continued and stronger leadership of youth by youth and
To publicly recognise the many young people who are rendering service to their communities as youth leaders.

Both Rachel and Lisa will be speaking about their experience at RYLA 2017 and the benefits and outcomes of the conference.
