NEXT GENERATION: Rotary clubs are proud to do their part to develop leaders in country communities.

I AM writing to advise of a fully sponsored scholarship opportunity available to local youth leaders to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Conference at Charles Sturt University Orange Campus from April 15 to 20.

The conference is based on a customised Australian Leadership Capability Framework and will feature national and international presenters, including one of Australia’s most dynamic speakers - Charles Tarbey, founder of Century 21 Real Estate. 

There will be a variety of topics which will appeal to a wide range of people, such as: leadership through personal and interpersonal skills, public speaking, organisational skills, personal resilience, meeting procedures, life balance, conflict resolution and career skills. There will also be community service activities and practical leadership challenges. 

The development of strong youth leaders in country communities is an important issue and Rotary clubs are proud to do their part. Local and regional employers interested in sponsoring their own staff’s development are also encouraged to participate. 

Applicants must be between 18 and 28 years of age and no longer at school. 

Further information can be obtained from the local Rotary Club or http://rotary9700.org.au/Page/ryla
