Participants attended sessions about leading with your talents, etiquette and protocol, and how to work with various personalities, among several others. In addition to these leadership sessions, RYLA participants met Miss Virginia, learned to swing dance, and, most importantly, practiced "Service Above Self" by packaging 10,000 meals for Stop Hunger Now in less than two hours!
