RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, which are gained by roughly 40 candidates who complete a one-week residential course held every July at Brimpts Farm, Dartmeet. The course comprises an intensive programme of outdoor activities and tasks aimed at team building skills, along with a series of projects and lectures from eminent, high achieving members of the South West community. The objective is to inspire and develop the confidence and ability of the candidates, to help them to become leaders in their communities and to plan interesting and useful lives.

If this course interests you, and your employer is willing to give you paid time off next July, then the Rotary Club would like to hear from you as soon as possible.
