Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott today urged Hills residents to nominate a deserving young person for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA).
Mr Elliott said the RYLA offered a valuable opportunity for local youth to develop their leadership skills.
“RYLA is a personal and professional development programme that recognises young leaders and empowers them to create positive change in their community,” Mr Elliott said.
“Many recipients of the Award leave the RYLA with a drive to create positive change in their community, along with increased confidence, self-awareness and a valuable support network.”
Award recipients will attend a week-long conference focussed on their leadership development. All costs are borne by the local sponsoring Rotary Club.
The 2014 RYLA Conference will be held from 11-18 January.
Nominations close Friday, 1 November.
