(formerly Slapshot)

Ages 15-18

The Jr. RYLA Committee is pleased to return to in-person programming after two years of successful virtual SLAPSHOT programming. Our program facilitators are excited to work with youth from across the district to connect with like-minded individuals and develop their leadership skills. Participants can expect engaging sessions with skilled facilitators where they will develop heightened self-awareness, problem-solving skills and a leadership mindset to create meaningful change in their schools and communities.
