Every year Rotary Leeds sponsors one or more 16 or 17 year old students to attend a one week Rotary Youth Leadership Awards course at Hebden Hey. Students are required to present a report after their course to their sponsoring Rotary club. 

Thomas Latham  and Rebecca Burrell, who attended a course in early August 2017, described the various challenging activites involved, among them bridge building, traversing a river, bivouacking out overnight, coracle and raft building and mountain rescue.

In their presentation they listed what they had gained from their RYLA experience:

service above self
amazing memories
to embrace challenge
never to be afraid to ask for help
everyone learns differently and that is OK
what it takes to be a good leader - leadership skills

Like so many before them, they affirmed the positive life-changing nature of Rotary RYLA courses.
