Ed Hengel, District co-Chair for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), discusses the significant effects on the lives of young adults selected for this unique program. Students acquire self-confidence as they learn about the fundamentals and ethics of positive leadership during several days together at the RYLA workshop. Groups are assigned tasks. As they work together on these projects, they learn problem solving, conflict management, and something about themselves. During the workshop, participants have access to guest speakers who represent different forms of leadership in a variety of professions. Most activities are run by young adults who themselves have gone through this program, which contributes to the success of this Rotary-funded program.
