This is held annually at the Petty Pool Centre in Sandiway, Cheshire. Lymm Rotary Club has frequently sponsored two or three young people to attend this one week course, at no cost to the students, ensuring that it is available to all, irrespective of means.
Our programme gives young people hands-on challenges to grow a variety of skills.
What is it?
RYLA, is a leadership development programme run by Rotary for young adults.
Whether from secondary school, university or occupation, RYLA helps to discover one’s potential and develop the skills needed to be a leader in your community, career and everyday life.
Each RYLA course is sponsored by a local Rotary club or group.
What does the programme offer?
RYLA programmes run between three to ten days and give participants the opportunity to:
Being a leader is not just about being confident enough to speak out and knowing what to say, it is knowing when to listen to others and understand. RYLA teaches this, and other soft skills, to help everyone to be the best they can be.
Teamwork exercises bring people together from different walks of life in a safe environment where everyone can get to know each other without fear of exclusion or negativity.
As with all Rotary programmes, Rotary members are appropriately DBS checked and risk assessments are carried out for all activities.
Who can take part ?
You don’t need to be a high achiever with outstanding academic grades, just be willing to try something new through activity-based learning and discover new talents along the way, as well as having fun.
RYLA programmes involve physical challenges so can be demanding. Some degree of fitness is required.
The courses are open to people aged 14 to 30.
