These are genuinely uncharted times, and we’re learning right alongside you as we navigate COVID–19 together.
It is with great sadness that our RYLA team has decided to cancel this year’s conference at Stetson University from June 11-14.
We take the safety of those entrusted in our care very seriously. A detailed email has been sent to all of our Rotary Club presidents explaining the factors that contributed to this decision. We do not feel that the Coronavirus will be adequately controlled to allow a large gathering with our participants and staff safely in June.
Our staff of former RYLArians were devastated with this news, but not defeated. They know how much our RYLA conference positively impacts those high school students selected to go, and they jumped at the opportunity to see what could be organized as a virtual option for select RYLA sessions. They are currently brainstorming the possibilities. As things develop, additional information will be shared on our social channels.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to better times ahead. We will begin planning for the 2021 RYLA conference after July.
Yours in Rotary Service,
