July 19: Marina Statsenko
Since 1985, District 5100 has led one of the premier RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) programs in the country. RYLA is one of the three programs that reside under the “Youth Services” Avenue of Service in Rotary. It is a great intensive entry for many young professionals into Rotary.
Our speaker, Marina, was our club’s 2015 award recipient and will speak about her experience.
Program Chair: Ida Lafky
Meeting Location: Willamette Heritage Center Dye Room
Greetings, Fellow Rotarians!
I hope this note finds you well!
I’m so excited about our program this week which will focus on RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. Special thanks to our very own Ida Lafky, who has energetically led this effort for our club for 17 years. I love Ida’s passion for nurturing the next generation of Rotarians. For more information on RYLA, I encourage you to visit the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards page on the Rotary International website. I have heard over and over again from many different young professionals how a Rotary opportunity – either RYLA or Youth Exchange, for example – profoundly changed their lives for the better. Investing in supporting these remarkable programs is a very concrete strategy for nurturing the next generation of Rotarians. Nurturing the next generation of Rotarians is a key focus of your Rotary Board of Directors, and something I’d like to invite all of us to get passionate about!
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Enjoy your day and Create Hope in the World!
