Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

This is a leadership development program which focuses on secondary school students, university students, or young professionals. RYLA events are typically 310 days long and cover a variety of topics including:

Leadership fundamentals and ethics
Communication skills
Problem solving and conflict management

In 2015 and 2016 the Club chose two young people to participate in the event at Castleton Rotary Camp in February. Although the Club is not involved in activities, members provided transport for the students. The students afterwards gave a presentation at a club meeting showing how they had benfited from the event.
