Last night I attended Fleet Rotary where I met Skye and Sebastian the two Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) attendees sponsored by Fleet.
The two individuals sung the praises and benefits of RYLA not only to them, but also in their communications and interaction with others. They found the challenges RYLA gave them, showed them how to lead, to work as a team to face challenges with increased confidence, make the understand multiple opinions and work out solutions. Well done to them both.
It never ceases to amaze me how when they first arrive they are quiet, anxious individuals, but by the end they are a TEAM with new best friends that will last a lifetime.
