  • Environmentally Sustainable Activities...For Everyone
    • Presented By: Matt Render, Keiron Nanan and Darren Sarijoen – Rotary District 7030 Environmental Sustainability Team
    • We are all aware of the importance of the environment and the need for all of us to do our part to ensure we take care of and protect our communities, our countries and our planet. Led by the Rotary District 7030 Environmental Sustainability Team, this session will introduce individuals and groups to readily available initiatives and showcase easily accessible activities which promote and foster environmental conservation, preservation, protection and sustainability.
  • Basics of Effective Communication
    • Presented By: Garth Thomas – Toastmasters International
    • Whether at school, at work or life in general, we all eventually have to stand in front of others and speak. While the occasion in which we need to publicly speak may vary – sometimes formal like a presentation, sometimes casual like a toast – there are a common set of skills and techniques which will help you better prepare, instill confidence and deliver an address like a professional. This session will serve as an introduction to these techniques and get you started on your path to public speaking and effective communication.
  • What Does It Mean To Be A Health Advocate In The Caribbean?
    • Presented By, Danielle Walwyn, Kerrie Barker and Pierre Cooke – Health Caribbean Coalition
    • Advocacy is a powerful tool – especially for up-and-coming leaders, like you, in our Caribbean community. 
      The Caribbean is currently facing a major epidemic – childhood obesity. Currently, 1 in 3 Caribbean Children is overweight or obese; this is primarily due to the overconsumption of unhealthy food and limited physical activity. We are concerned because (i) habits developed in childhood are likely to carry over into adulthood and (ii) many more young people are developing chronic non-communicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes, which are linked to unhealthy weights. The thing is, young leaders, like you, can play a huge role in bringing awareness to this issue and advocating for healthier environments. Youth advocates from the Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) look forward to discussing ways that you can become health advocates within your community!
      The Healthy Caribbean Coalition (HCC) is the only regional NCD alliance of civil society organisations in the Caribbean. The HCC has almost 100 health and non-health members represented across the region. The HCC is committed to supporting a whole-of-society (WoS) approach to the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in the Caribbean. The HCC has always prioritized youth engagement; it has a Youth Technical Advisor and recently developed a youth body – The Healthy Caribbean Youth.
  • Childhood Obesity...Prevention Is Better Than Cure
    • Presented By: Rosmund Adams – Rotary District 7030 Childhood Obesity Prevention Team
    • A major regional and community issue which Rotary District 7030 shall be tackling over the next few years is the significant increase in the incidence of Childhood Obesity, which has grown at an alarming rate in the Caribbean and now poses a serious and disturbing risk to the health of an entire generation. Building on the work and success of previous undertakings over the years and to actively generate tangible and positive results through a structured and strategic plan, Rotary District 7030 has created its Childhood Obesity Prevention Program (COPP) branded as Healthy Cogs. Through focused initiatives and enabled active projects and activities within communities across the region, the Healthy Cogs program aims to not only reduce the incidence of this epidemic and many of the non-communicable diseases associated with it, but also, mitigate some of the associated risks children are exposed to as a result. This session will introduce the premise of the program and how young persons can get involved.

  • Creating Peaceful Spaces
    • Presented By: Carlotta Boodie – Rotary District 7030 Peace-Building Team
    • Conflict is a normal and natural part of everyday life and it impacts all types of relationships. We each must deal with conflict in one form or another. From a simple disagreement to a full-blown argument, conflict takes many shapes and sizes. Responses to conflict varies but it may potentially evoke the strongest of emotions escalating to all forms of violence. How best we deal with conflict and resolve differences is a key factor in building and promoting peace - one of Rotary's main areas of focus across the globe. This session will help develop one's ability to understand, manage and express the social and emotional aspects of our lives in wholesome and positive ways as we learn how to create peaceful spaces to better accommodate conflict resolution and facilitate positive change and peace.
  • STEM - Education In The 21st Century
    • Presented By: Louis Ramdhanie – AdmitOne Caribbean
    • STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. The frequent and continuous advances in technology are changing the way students learn and communicate daily. STEM empowers individuals with the skills required to succeed and adapt to this ever-changing world. By merging the disciplines, STEM encourages higher levels of creativity and effectiveness when it comes to problem solving.  It is focused on encouraging thought and creativity, rather than simply replicating what is already known. The global economy is changing. Current jobs are disappearing due to automation and new jobs which require STEM skills are emerging every day because of technological advances. This session will introduce STEM-based education and the facilities available to young persons.
  • Understanding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
    • Presented By: Nadine Pemberton – Rotarians Against Racism
    • As a global network that strives to build a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change, Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. A top priority for companies and organizations around the world, including Rotary, is growing and diversifying employees, membership, customers and stakeholders to make sure the communities serve are properly reflected and are inclusive of all cultures, experiences, and identities. Want to know what Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) means; and what it means for you? Making DEI a priority is everyone's responsibility and this session will introduce young persons to how best they can accomplish such. Nadine Pemberton, Change and Inclusion Consultant and member of Rotary International's first DEI Taskforce, will take you through the basics of DEI, will let you know what Rotary International is doing for DEI and, will give you some tips on how you can be a champion for diversity and change in your own lives.

  • How To Build Your Personal (Social) Brand
    • Presented By: Bernadette Chin Lee – WSI International
    • We hear the adage “Observe what 95% of your peers are doing AND do the exact opposite!” Yet, we naturally jump into the fray by copying, mirroring, and, in fact, seeking to beat others at their game by trying to do what they are already doing...but "better". Guilty of this? We all may be. However, there are a few tricks to keep the blinders on at the right time and how to find and define “Who Am I in the CyberWorld”. If you are on a quest to climb your corporate career ladder… this session is for you. It will lean more towards an interactive workshop facilitating questions and participation. In this short, but packed session, you will learn: 1) The Philosophy to Discover Your Unique CyberSelf; 2) How to Avoid the “Mirror Blackhole”; 3) Networking Do’s and Don'ts; 4) How to Develop Your Personal Brand; and 5) How to Gamify Your Way To Your Next Hire. By implementing what is shared in this session, you will build a valuable social network.
  • Journey To Interact
    • Presented By: Sean Nelson & Zachary Phillips Rotaract
    • This session will address the mission, opportunities and benefits of Interact - one of Rotary's main Youth Service Programs. This session will not only touch on what an Interact club can offer young persons, but also, how it provides them with a vehicle for service and getting involved with their community. Whether currently involved in Interact or not, participants will get a better sense of what an Interact club is, how it should operate, what it can do, and, how best to get involved.
  • Project Management In A Nutshell
    • Presented By: Colin John Jenkins – CJC and Associates 
    • Our world's future is in the hands of the next generation. They face enormous problems that can only be solved through effective, global, human collaboration and innovation. Problems such as global warming, war, natural disasters, disease, poverty, and famine are not isolated to any one country or region. They are not caused by any one country or region. And these problems cannot be solved by those who created them. Paraphrasing Albert Einstein: unless there is a change of consciousness, followed by action now, instead of waiting for our youth to grow up and deal with them. Project management practitioners and chapters are uniquely experienced to help mentor the next generation, to equip them with the skills and tools to effectively collaborate and achieve project success in solving many such problem we face. 
  • Rotary Opens Opportunities...For Youth
    • Presented By: Jeffry Cadorette – Rotary District 7450 
    • To wrap up RYLA 2021, this closing session focuses on the variety of opportunities available to youth via Rotary. While many of the RYLA 2021 participants may already be part of the Rotary family (i.e. Rotaractors and Interactors), RYLA 2021 also aims to have those outside the Rotary family in attendance. This mix of participants would mean that the full scope of Rotary's youth programs and initiatives may be presented and showcased as familiarity with such will vary from some to none. This session will not only present an overview on opportunities and benefits available from programs such as Rotaract, Interact, RYE, NGSE, Fellowships, Scholarships, etc., but also, how Rotary presents a vehicle for service to youth, as well as, what Rotary clubs themselves and becoming a Rotarian can offer young persons.

Today, ReThink has impacted 5 million students, and been introduced to 134 countries through the U.S. State Department. For her work with ReThink, Trisha was named a Google Science Fair Global Finalist, and selected to present ReThink at The White House. She is also the humbled recipient of many awards; among them, the WebMD Health Hero Prodigy Award. And in the business world, Trisha has made waves — as a contestant on ABC’s Shark Tank, and as the winner of Harvard University's President's Innovation Challenge. In 2021, she was the youngest honoree named to Forbes 30 Under 30 Social Impact list. Trisha has delivered 50+ talks in 30 cities about the power of “ReThinking.” 
Outside of ReThink, Trisha volunteers her time teaching women to code at Girls Who Code, and leading SoGal Boston, a chapter of the SoGal movement.
