RYLA 2006

The most recent RYLA course,held between April 2nd and 7th at The Charterhouse Centre, near Blagdon in Somerset was attended by thirty six 16 to 18 year old young leaders from around District1100, and was an outstanding success.


The course provided a challenging opportunity for participants to meet their personal objectives, develop self esteem and improve their communication, leadership, and presentation skills.

The carefully structured programme included exercises backed by theory and regular reviews. Participants were issued with a learning log at the beginning of the course, in which they recorded their learning each day and which complimented their own personal action plan.

The Rotary Club of Ross-on-Wye sponsored Felicity Jordan pictured in the images wearing a red fleece. The Club is looking for suitable candidates, aged 16-18 years, for the year 2007 which looks like being held in the summer and thus should not rule anyone out because of exams.if the course met the participants expectations, a number of participants responded, in a post course critique, that it '…totally exceeded my expectation…', and '…bettered it…' Every single participant said they would recommend RYLA to a friend, with some endorsing the response with '…..definitely!…'
