Youth Services - RYLA 2019
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
RYLA is a five night residential course
held in The Forest of Dean which aims to improve the leadership skills of 40
young people aged between 16 and 18.
Through a series of challenging, practical and theoretical exercises,
the RYLA course provides opportunities to improve leadership and communication
skills, and self-confidence.
Activities include a ropes course, canoeing, climbing, abseiling
and orienteering. The programme is carefully structured so that exercises are
backed by theory to develop leadership and team skills.
Reservations are now being taken for the 2019 course which will
start on 23 July and culminate with the end-of-course presentations and buffet
on 28 July. Entry forms and full details will be available in December.
The cost is £520 per place as per 2018.
Contact your local Rotary Club if you
are aged between 16 and 18, and would like to be considered for a place.
