Episode 39: TMI Juniors Victor Alejos and Mary Warder talk about RYLA

January 31, 2019

In this episode, TMI juniors Victor Alejos and Mary Warder talk about their experiences at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference that was held at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels over the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend and sponsored by Rotary District 5840. The Dominion Rotary Club of San Antonio sponsored our two TMI students to attend the event.

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference (RYLA) is a program of Rotary International and is a leadership development program for young adults. The conferences are held all over the world and range from one-day seminars to weekend-long conferences. Both local Rotary Clubs and Districts organize the events for students in their communities and give them the opportunity to learn from community leaders, inspirational speakers, and peer mentors. Students are challenged to build upon their communication and problem-solving skills, learn strategies to become dynamic leaders, and help them turn motivation into action.
