"It’s been almost 10 years since I first attended RYLA, and I can say with confidence that it has been an integral stepping stone in my journey thus far. I have always loved volunteering, caring for others, and generally being helpful to those around me. RYLA not only provided me a sense of community among like-minded peers but encouraged me to pursue a career that allowed me to continue participating in those same passions." - Alissa Smith
