As part of a continuing effort to support youth leadership in critical thinking in personal and professional lives, Capitol Hill Rotarians will be sponsoring two high school students to attend the 2017 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program in Chevy Chase, MD. RYLA is a three-day leadership training program that is designed to recognize, encourage, and further develop the leadership skills of 10th, 11th and 12th grade high school students who have shown a potential for rendering important service to their schools and communities. Rotary established this program to enable promising young leaders to encounter and analyze critical issues of professional and business ethics and to accept responsibility; to confront and resolve critical social, cultural, economic, and environmental issues; and to develop and refine leadership skills.
 
This year's program will start February 18th. We congratulate all participants and wish them a productive and enjoyable event!
