RYLA changed my life. As simple as that sounds it is true. I learned so much about leadership and community service and what it means to truly give back to this world. But even more than what I have learned I am a part of RYLA because of what I have seen others do in their lives after challenging themselves at RYLA. If I can keep pouring into this program and into these RYLArian’s I get to keep seeing them go out and change the world. And THAT is amazing.

I attended RYLA 2008 as a student, back when it was held at Stetson University. I was surrounded by extraordinary individuals, and I at once felt dwarfed by each of my incredible fellows and inspired by them, beyond the power of words alone. Such environs are scarce in today’s world, and I have been very fortunate to be permitted to return for five of the six years that followed. The fact that we can provide such an opportunity even in today’s harshly realistic world is my motivation–I want kids for generations to be able to feel as humbled and empowered as I did during those four days.
