Where: University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, 13001 E 17th Pl, Aurora, Colorado 80045
Any Undocumented/ DREAMer student who is pursuing any pre-health career (pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-nursing, etc.,) is welcome to join us in our FIRST annual CU DREAMing for Health Summit. We have invited multiple Undocumented Friendly Medical Schools within the United States that offer multiple pre-health programs. We will also be having representatives from Anschutz Medical Campus where the summit will also be held. This summit is designed to inform DREAMer students the “ins and outs” of how to get into Medical School, Dentistry School, Nursing School, etc. There will be various workshops tailored to our DREAMer students so that they are able to accomplish their Pre-Health Dreams.
Being Undocumented and wanting to go into the medical field is very difficult, majority of Dreamers wish to become Doctors, Nurses, Physical Therapists, etc., This summit will help students who are in undergraduate school see that there are schools who see them, who see potential in them, who have resources for them to make their dreams reality.

What is RYLA?
RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. For over 25 years, Rotary has sponsored this 5-day leadership conference for high school juniors and seniors called RYLA. The objectives of RYLA are:
- To provide an atmosphere where future leaders experience democratic living, and which will aid them in developing sound values.
- To promote an environment that will provide each individual with the basis of insight and understanding for intelligent leadership.
- To expose youth leaders to some opportunities and challenges of life in a free democratic, society.
- To promote involvement that encourages the participants to think through and arbitrate conflicts in values.
These objectives are accomplished through a 5-day program that emphasizes values like personal responsibility, service and integrity and develops skills like goal-setting, decision-making, teamwork and interpersonal skills. The program is very action-oriented and includes activities like guest speakers, the RYLA Olympics, teambuilding activities, skits and group discussions on issues appropriate to this age group. The students stay in a dormitory environment and are supervised by adult Rotarians.
When and where is it?
The conference will be held at the YMCA in Estes Park, CO, 60 minutes northwest of Denver. There are 2 camps and the student can select which week they would like to attend based on their schedule. The first camp will begin mid-afternoon Sunday, July 15 and conclude at noon on Friday, July 20, 2018. The second week will begin mid-afternoon Sunday, July 22 and conclude at noon on Friday, July 27, 2018.
Who is eligible?
- Any student entering the 11th or 12th grade next fall.
- The ideal candidate for RYLA has either demonstrated leadership ability in school, church or community activities or is a responsible and enthusiastic follower and has leadership potential. Sometime the best candidate has yet to have his or her leadership potential discovered.
- A young person who is honest, responsible and shows the ability to make good decisions.
- A young person who is recommended by a teacher, counselor or Rotarian and in good standing with the school.
What does it cost?
As an award for excellence, a local Rotary Club pays the conference fee of $450, and over 100 volunteers donate a week of their time, so there is no cost to the student.
How can students apply?
The student completes an application online at www.rmRYLA.org, gets their parent’s signature, and also gets the signature of a counselor, teacher or Rotarian. They will then be interviewed for possible selection by the Mead Rotary club. They MUST contact the Mead Rotary Club RYLA REP to ensure they are scheduled for an interview! Each Rotary club interviews and selects the winning students by May 15. Every Rotary club establishes its own schedule prior to May 15, so contact them early to be sure and fit into their schedule.
They can call or email Veronica Silbaugh after they have filled out their application.
For more information, please read everything on the home page and in the “About RYLA” link on www.rmRYLA.org, and contact your local Rotary Club via the “Find Rotary Contacts” page on the web site. You can also contact the RYLA Registrar, Registrar@rmRYLA.org.

The Center for Legal Inclusiveness, a Denver-based nonprofit wanted to share with you the exciting news of a new pipeline initiative for current sophomore high school students interested in the law: Journey to JD (J2JD).
J2JD is a one-week residential program, June 24-30, 2018, at the University of Denver, for 20 diverse rising high school juniors in Colorado. Students will gain a basic understanding of the legal system and empower them to explore the possibilities of a career in the law.
The camp will feature interactive and engaging learning opportunities:
- Classroom discussion led by law school faculty, attorneys and law students, and
- Field trips highlighting different careers and opportunities in the legal profession.
The application process is relatively easy. Online, students may submit the application and other requested materials, and have a nonfamily member complete a recommendation form. Alternatively, PDF copies are available to print and mail. The deadline is March 31st.
Except for a $50 seat deposit (which may be waived), there is no cost for students to attend. Housing, meals, field trips, local transportation and learning materials will be covered by the camp.
This program has the potential to make an impact in creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession in Colorado. But your help is needed. Will you help me by promoting this opportunity to students in your organization? And please feel free to share with other organizations to help disseminate this information.
On March 10th and March 31st the US Service Academies will be hosting information sessions. Any interested students should plan on attending.
