Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)

RYLA is a weeklong residential program conducted annually for 18- to 25-year-olds. RYLA encourages emerging and experienced leaders to reflect on their own skills and personal strengths to effectively contribute to their communities in a practical manner. RYLA provides opportunities to share leadership experiences within a diverse group to understand the unique qualities, abilities and skills of others and how this diversity can empower and encourage participants to facilitate teamwork and greater understanding. Rotary clubs are invited to nominate, sponsor or part-sponsor a young leader and provide practical support and encouragement. During the RYLA program there is a formal dinner to which all Rotarians are invited.
