Schaumburg A.M. Rotary is seeking outstanding local high school students to participate in one of two Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) retreats (an all expenses paid, 3 day program) scheduled for either March 9 - 12 or April 13 - 16, 2023 at Edwards YMCA Camp & Conference Center in East Troy, Wisconsin, located near Alpine Valley. 
 
The RYLA program emphasizes both personal growth and leadership skills development in addition to citizenship. It is to designed to provide participants with an opportunity to explore and further develop those skills with their peers having similar capabilities.
 
The three day weekend includes fun, recreation and education for all involved. Students hear from nationally recognized speakers and return both inspired and motivated to make a difference in their school, their community and beyond. Feedback regarding this weekend experience is that it is always outstanding.  Take a look at the video below to learn more about the RYLA retreat experience.

Schaumburg AM Rotary Club members stopped in at School District 54 headquarters this morning to deliver 70+ pairs of new athletic style gym shoes that will be distributed to students from low-income families via the district's social worker network.  This is the club's second donation of new shoes to District 54 in as many years.
 
The shoes feature a durable rubber sole, are machine washable and come in a variety of colors and were obtained through Operation Warm’s Warm Soles program.
 
Kudos to Bill Paton, our community service chair, for coordinating the details that made this possible!
 
See below for SD54's acknowledgment of our donation.
 
On behalf of the Schaumburg A.M. Rotary Club Foundation, club members Jim McKenzie and Tim Gerhardt presented a $2,500 grant to the Hoffman Estates High School auto tech program taught by Dave Ligman.
 
This grant is designed to enhance and compliment our club's need based CTE/vocational scholarship award program that is available to qualifying auto tech students who wish to continue their automotive education after high school but need financial assistance to do so.  The educational award covers tuition, books and supplies.
