YAIL gives participants insight into some of the basics of what it means, and takes, to be a leader: to help participants become well-rounded individuals with increased perspective and enthusiasm for growth, and who are able to make informed decisions.
YAIL teaches participants through a variety of exercises involving leadership and growth – to empower students to network, plan, and set goals. Participants are divided into groups with an experienced youth facilitator.
The program is led by youth, with guidance from adult Rotarians. Candidates are selected and sponsored by a local Rotary Club, with a mix of males & females, Canadians & Americans.
We typically have a broad range of personalities and many different types of leaders – coming from academics, sports, arts or other parts of the community. There are both verbal types and quiet ones who lead by their behavior and by example.
