Rotary Youth Leadership Awards 2020

FREE leadership experience for 16 & 17year olds.

 Rotary in Knaresborough is looking for a young person to benefit from a one-week residential leadership course to be held during the summer of 2020.

The Rotary youth leadership award course (RYLA) is designed to allow young people to experience at first hand the challenge of leadership. This course is open to young men and women who are over 16 at the start and under 18 on the day the course concludes.

The course contains a mixture of physical and mental challenges that allow participants to experience leadership, team building, communication and problem-solving skills.

These are based on both indoor and outdoor activities including water activities, orienteering, raft building and presentations

Rotary has been running these courses for over 20 years and has helped over 1,000 young adults to develop their personal skills as a leader. Rotary is proud of the system of helping to develop the leaders of tomorrow and looks forward to meeting and working with many more in the future. The course takes place at Hebden Hay, a Scout hostel situated in the Hardcastle Crags valley above Hebden Bridge.

The course dates for 2020 are:-  Course 1 Saturday 25th July to Friday 31st July 2020                                                                       Course 2 Saturday 1st August to Friday 7th August 2020  Full sponsorship is available through Rotary in Knaresborough.
