A new Rotary - Peace Corps initiative is organizing an international youth conference this summer in Ukraine. 
For the past several months, Bill Meyer and Bill Rubin from Boulder Rotary Club have been working with Andy Lenec, a former Club member, to organize the Truskavets International Youth Conference in Truskavets, Ukraine.
Andy is now serving in the Peace Corps in Truskavets supporting the developing non-profit sector, including the Truskavets Rotary Club.  That Club, along with several other Ukrainian Rotary Clubs and their District 2232, are organizing the conference, to bring together young leaders ages 16-19 from the US, Western Europe, and Ukraine to learn best from each other.
The Conference will be 7 days in early August, based on the RYLA model.  Young people will spend time together learning, working and socializing, and experientially practicing and perfecting skill sets such as leadership, volunteerism, communication, conflict resolution and team building.
District 5450 was instrumental in signing a memorandum of understanding between Rotary and the Peace Corps, and BRC has been a strong supporter of that cooperation.   The Truskavets Conference has been officially embraced by Rotary District 2232, as well as the Peace Corps. 
Rotary in Ukraine and the Peace Corps need young leaders from the US to attend, and young trainers to participate in the Conference.  They also need adults with RYLA or similar backgrounds to provide support and adult leadership training for the Ukrainian Rotarians.  If you know of young people or adults who might be interested in participating, please contact Bill Meyer for more information.
