Know a young leader? West Seattle Rotary has an offer

Our next generation of leaders is already out there making a difference – and some training and mentoring can help them go even further. Tara Luckie from the Rotary Club of West Seattle says they’re hoping you can suggest candidates for such support:

The West Seattle Rotary Club seeks your help in identifying and nominating West Seattle qualified and interested candidates to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Seminar (at no cost to the student or school). The conference will be held at Pacific Lutheran University February 28th- March 3rd, 2013.

RYLA is an intensive leadership training conference and workshop. The program has been carefully designed to provide basic leadership training and experience for young people from Western Washington and Canada. The program will include lectures and discussions with skilled and prominent leaders, as well as recreation, good food, and fellowship.

We are seeking student applicants who have demonstrated a desire and some ability as a responsible leader of others. These students don’t necessarily have to hold student body leadership positions. What we do suggest is that those that apply for RYLA have high character and a constructive attitude, and are in a position to learn and benefit from this experience.

Please help us by selecting qualified students, have them fill out the application by January 29th, 2013 and forward the applications to Rotarian Tara Luckie at Tara will then send more detailed information to student(s) on their application status.

Find the application here.

    Where is the application?

      WS Parent – Just added the application; sorry about that. Seems it was an embedded link in the e-mail, which didn’t carry over.
      Herongrrrl – Looking at the web link, the “program info” page yields this: “RYLA NW is targeted toward high school juniors and sophomores in Districts 5020 and 5030.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
