The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley has selected qualified candidates for this year’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) conference to be held online during the weekend of June 25, 26, and 27. The program will offer an action- packed and interactive learning environment, designed to challenge participants to use and improve their leadership skills.  Best of all, there is no charge to students who participate. The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley is sponsoring six students and two alternatives for this year’s conference. 

Robert Johnson, local Committee Chairperson, said that participants were selected from students who have exhibited leadership potential and are currently in their sophomore year of high school.  The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley contacted high school principals, guidance counselors, youth organizations, and other sources for nominations and welcomes applications and recommendations from the public.

The conference will feature thought-provoking events, including interactive Leadership Labs, exciting guest speakers, and challenging mental and physical activities. Topics will include decision-making, critical thinking, communicating effectively, ethics, and public service.
