RYLA and Rotaract
There are two categories in the Rotary Youth Leadership Award scheme, able-bodied and disabled. Students are chosen by interview and spend a week at a campsite in Wales where they are encouraged by specialist staff to engage in group problem solving and character building exercises such as rock climbing, abseilng and white water rafting. After returning from the course, the students are invited to a.Club meeting to talk about their experiences and receive their RYLA certificate. The costs of the RYLA course are met by the Club's Youth Activities fund.
Members of a Rotaract club consist of men and women between the ages of 18 and 30. They approach the world with the views and visions of Rotary together with the various skills they have developed in their own right as Rotaractors.
Rotaractors enjoy the fellowship of being Club members, they enjoy raising money for their chosen charities, they enjoy working hands-on for their local communities, and they are proud to be part of the world-wide fellowship of Rotary.
