RYLA

Rotary Youth Leadership Award. RYLA is a leadership development course. It is a rare opportunity to experience and learn things about yourself, about working in a team but more importantly about leading and supervising other people.


WHAT IS RYLA?

RYLA is a leadership development course. It is not a pass or fail course and you will be as successful on it as you are willing to be. There are no limits for your development. We aim to help you realise some of the leadership potential that others have seen when they selected you for it. It is not an outward bound course! Yes, a lot of the activities may take place outside but it is about using a variety of activities, both in and outdoors to develop you as an individual, as a team member and as a leader of a team in a safe and enjoyable environment.

It is a rare opportunity to experience and learn things about yourself, about working in a team but more importantly about leading and supervising other people. In the workplace it could take years before employees get to attend a similar type of course, if they ever get to attend one at all.

There are two courses that we run on consecutive weeks in the Summer holidays for young people who are 16 and 17 years old. They take place at a scout hostel called Hebden Hey on the outskirts of Hebden Bridge – www.hebdenhey.org.uk.

RYLA has been running in the Yorkshire area for more than  20 years.
