From the Youth Committee:
The Youth Committee of the National Board of Directors is asking for your help. There is nothing in Ruritan more important than our youth. Without them there is no future for Ruritan. We do not want any youth left behind because they could not afford to be a part of this exciting event that could shape their future and the future of Ruritan. The Youth Committee's goal is for these young people to build their leadership skills while they learn more about Ruritan and community service. We will wrap all this great education in a fantastic, fun time full of fellowship and joy. The facility provides a safe and inviting space for all of this to take place.
