Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
What is RYLA about?
Youth Leadership Awards
The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is one of the most successful Rotary programmes run by Rotary clubs around the world.
The fun and intensive RYLA training programme for 18 to 25 year olds offers the leaders of the future a chance to get a head start at an early age. The programme is highly varied and combines organisational, physical and sporting activities, as well as offering opportunies to develop discussion, social and leadership skills.
Talented young people attend a seminar, camp, or workshop - generally three to ten days in length - organised by Rotary club members. The residential and group-oriented scenario enables young people to debate issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improve leadership and communication skills, learn about businesses and institutions, and meet Rotarians while having a great deal of fun and making friends for life. For young adults, RYLA provides the opportunity to refine skills and explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders.
The RYLA programme gives young people and young adults the chance to improve leadership and communication skills, learn about businesses and institutions, explore career paths, share ideas and experiences, learn how to coordinate youth activities and community service projects in the community, and discuss creative approaches for resolving family, social, and professional conflicts.
Whether you are a secondary school student, university student, or young professional, RYLA provides a unique opportunity to learn, grow, have fun, and make new friends. Nobody
