Our Global Grant scholar has returned from a very challenging 10 day RYLA experience.   
RYLA is held at Camp Getaway on remote bush near Axedale and about 15 mins from Bendigo at the end of November each year.  The program is led by Rotaractors and youth coordinators in the district and provides a challenging sequence of learning and leadership development, challenge by choice and problem solving.
Haruka was joined by Alex Lapina from Rotary Wyndham and met several other like minded and young girls.  
Our former RYLA participant Zoe Borghouts was her team leader and assisted her with understanding the program and managing homesickness.  She was very glad to see me and slept part of the way home.
