RYLA is the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference. It is 3 days of interactive sessions with high school sophomores. The activities are designed to help the students grow and challenge them to go outside of their comfort zone and engage with other students that they do not know.
The Hudson Rotary Club is proud to sponsor multiple students per year for this leadership conference. In 2017, we sent 5 students to the event, which took place at Fitchburg State University. The students have a great time, and learn many new skills to help them prepare for the next aspects of their lives.
Please take a look at the RYLA website to learn more about this wonderful youth program that the Hudson Rotary Club is proud to sponsor. They are always looking for volunteers for that weekend to help make sure the conference runs smoothly. Even if you’re not a member of a Rotary Club, you can volunteer to help these young students out. Click here for more detail.
The 2018 conference will take place June 22-24, 2018 at Fitchburg State University. If you are a student that is interested in this amazing experience or a parent that thinks their child would be interested, please contact Cheryl Rosen for more information and to obtain an application. To qualify for RYLA, the student must be a current sophomore and live in Hudson. You do not need to attend Hudson High School. Even if you are home schooled or attend a charter school, you will be eligible as long as you live in Hudson.
Our club will be accepting applications from students through the end of February (exact date will be posted when it’s known) and will interview the students in March. The students that are selected to attend will be notified by the middle of March and the students must get registered by April 1 to assure a spot for the weekend.
