In an intense 3-day seminar organized by the Rotarians of District 5300 of Rotary International, the students debated issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improved leadership and communications skills, learned about businesses and institutions, and met Rotarians while having fun and making friends.
Each student has many accolades to their credit and was selected after an interview process with current Rotarians.
RYLA took place March 4-6 in Idyllwild, CA. 288 students were in attendance from Southern CA to Nevada. Rotarians from across District 5300 facilitated workshops and activities that help foster leadership and problem solving.
Upon returning, Giselle Moreau, Jamie Truong, Stephanie Garcia, Dushani DeSilva, Amanda Aquilar, Corrine Marino, Kevin Romero, Levi Helm, Christopher Rosedale, Saul Denova, Diego Nieves, and Michael Arevelos presented a report at the weekly meeting of the Rotary Club of Monrovia on Tuesday, March 8, 2011. The club sends several high school juniors each year. Students interested in attending in the future can learn more at www.rotaryclubofmonrovia.com or www.District5300.org/ryla
