“I am very grateful to the Rotary Club of Hall for its sponsorship to the Rotary Young Leadership Award training (RYLA) 2012.
I have benefited enormously from the RYLA program in ways such communication, team work and decision making. Through series of seminars and practicals that focus on the different leadership techniques, RYLA has enabled me to identify my leadership potential and set higher goals. The training also motivated the individual participants to overcome their own fear and weakness by generating ideas and incorporating contributions from team members as a building block.
The RYLA program is well organised, with a purpose of preparing young leaders to embrace responsibilities in all areas of their lives. Myself and other participants agree with this statement because we have noted some transformation that reflects the skills that we’ve gained from RYLA such as consistency, honesty, competency, resilience, motivation, moral courage and extensive community involvement.
The friendly environment, delicious food and competent trainers and organisers made RYLA a lifetime experience. In this regard, I strongly recommend that Rotary Club of Hall continue sponsoring potential candidates to attend RYLA because the program is very successful in preparing young people for future leadership responsibilities.”
