RYPEN is a camp set up by Rotarians (run by different groups, this time it was St Johns) that help encourage and enrich the lives of future leaders. Each teen has been put forward, applied on behalf, and selected to come along.
Wow, what a group! 69 students from 28 different high schools and 7 different countries.
I really enjoyed meeting and speaking to the group, they listened and responded well. What impressed me was some of the thoughtful questions they asked. A few individuals really stood out, asked what they felt was on top for them, and even a select few came up to me afterwards.
Happy, honoured and encouraged by their youthful, playful attitudes. Future leaders in the making. The ks for having me Hilary.
