Youth Services - RYLA 2019

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

RYLA is a five night residential course held in The Forest of Dean which aims to improve the leadership skills of 40 young people aged between 16 and 18.

Through a series of challenging, practical and theoretical exercises, the RYLA course provides opportunities to improve leadership and communication skills, and self-confidence.

Activities include a ropes course, canoeing, climbing, abseiling and orienteering. The programme is carefully structured so that exercises are backed by theory to develop leadership and team skills.

Reservations are now being taken for the 2019 course which will start on 23 July and culminate with the end-of-course presentations and buffet on 28 July. Entry forms and full details will be available in December.

The cost is £520 per place as per 2018.

Contact your local Rotary Club if you are aged between 16 and 18, and would like to be considered for a place.

We look after the information on all RYLA candidates, in accordance with GDPR - for details click here.
