Youth Services - Other Opportunities

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards are, in our district, a five night residential course held in July in The Forest of Dean. The course 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.

Contact your local Rotary Club if you are aged 16 – 18 and would like to be considered for a place in 2019.

If you are a Rotarian who would like to find out more about RYLA in District 1100, or how to get your club involved, please contact Eddie Sims RYLA Coordinator See menu to the right of this page for information and forms.
