Today we welcomed our RYLA students: Kevin Mantell and Steven Fitzgerald. They told us about their recent invigorating learning experience at the RYLA seminar. They said it was a weekend they will never forget and gave them much to think about. It is the goal of RYLA, during this seminar to give young people (10th graders) communication and problem solving skills; unlock potential; to turn motivation into action; discover strategies for becoming leaders and to have fun and form lasting friendships. Both young men seem to have taken a great deal from this
seminar. Best wishes, Kevin and Steven and thank you for joining us today.
