Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)

Rotary Youth Leadership Award is a Rotary International programme for young people to develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship amongst their communities.

District members please log in for more information.

RYLA is an intensive leadership experience organised by Rotary Districts.  Historically District 1145 RYLA takes the form of a five-day camp.  At present we concentrate on young people of secondary school age to hone their leadership potential through activites and workshops covering a variety of topics.  (To read more about RYLA please visit the Rotary GB&I website, but we encourage you to use the enquiry form below (not the Rotary GB&I 'get involved' button) for further information.)

In 2024 the RYLA camp in this area will be held from 28 July - 2 August.

If you want to take part, please fill out our enquiry form and we will point you in the right direction.
