Hello Rotarians and Future Leaders of the Free World!
It’s RYLA time again!  ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARDS camp!
 
In case you don’t remember what RYLA is, I am here to remind you that it is one of the most life-changing leadership camps for high schools students offered in Arizona and around the world! At RYLA, we help develop leadership skills and incredible self confidence in even the most introverted of students.

This year's RYLA for Arizona’s East Valley students will again be in Heber, Arizona at Camp Ponderosa from Thursday, April 6th to Sunday, April 9th. Buses will depart the Valley with “clueless youth” on that Thursday morning and return with many “miraculously transformed students” on that Sunday evening.

If you are a Rotarian, please ask your club to sponsor some delegates, (preferably freshmen or sophomores), to this year's RYLA. If you are an Interact advisor, talk to your sponsoring Rotary club about sponsoring some delegates! The camp fee is $350 per delegate. If you know a potential delegate who is looking for a Rotarian sponsor, or if you are part of a Rotary club looking to sponsor some delegates, please contact John Wintersteen, our District 5510 Youth Services and Interact Chair, at: jdwintersteen@gmail.com, Cell: 602-390-3124, or Sherry Mischel, our D5510 RYLA Chair, at: sherry5510@cox.net Cell: 602-510-3339.

If a student has been selected by a Rotary club for sponsorship, the next step for them is to go to: http://www.rotaryazinteract.org/district-5510-ryla and download the 'Accepted Delegate Form', then upload the completed form as directed. Direct any RYLA related questions to John, Sherry, or myself.

Sincerely,
Mitchell Dodell
District 5510 Interact District Governor
