What a great meeting – the people from Angel Flights had a great sense of humour – and obviously a sense of adventure as well as caring and empathy. Their commitment to people who need assistance bring to mind the words ‘unsung heroes’.
RYLA is offering a unique opportunity to go through the experiences of a RYLArian.
We have all seen the changes in our RYLA candidates - the excitement and joy when they return – they are more confident; they have a focus on their direction in life. It seems like a wonderful experience.
Well now we have the opportunity to experience what they experience.
