Youth Programs

The Round Lake Area Exchange Club is honored to recognize the work of our youth. As National Exchange states, America’s young people are its most precious resource. RLA Exchange embodies this philosophy and makes available each year opportunities for high school seniors to participate in a Youth of the Month/Year Award contest and also recognizes a senior with its Accepting the Challenge of Excellence Award.
