Meeting -   Today our guest speaker was James Fox, chair of RYLA south. 
The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary’s leadership training and personal development program for young people. Youth leaders from across the province are sponsored by a participating Rotary club to attend a RYLA camp as an “award” for their demonstrated leadership and service to their community.
RYLA South is for grade 10-­12 students looking for an intensive leadership and personal development training program. RYLA South’s goal is to provide participants with the skills they need to navigate their way through the challenges teens encounter in their formative years.
The 4­-day camp consists of interactive workshops, team­building exercises, presentations from professional speakers, hands ­on service projects and many other fun activities.
Our club is sponsoring 8 attendees this year, 6 from King George and 2 from Strathcona.
