Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
RYLA - "The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards" are part of the Rotary International education programs and are aimed at young adults who have demonstrated leadership potential at their school, youth organisation or place of employment.
The Yorkshire District 1040 RYLA course is designed to give participants the opportunity of experiencing the challenge of leadership at first hand using a series of exercises, formal debrief sessions, discussion groups and one to one mentoring.
The courses are staffed by a mixture of professional instructors and volunteer Rotarians from the District.
Courses are free of charge to successful applicants and are financed and recruited for by your local Rotary Club. The only thing that is required of the RYLA Awardee is that they give their best, put in 100%, enjoy it and later give a presentation to the Rotary Club that sponsored them.
