Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is one of the most successful Rotary programmes run by Rotary clubs around the world.

The fun and intensive training programme for 14 to 30 year olds offers the leaders of the future a chance to get a head start at an early age. Talented young people attend a seminar, camp, or workshop – generally three to ten days in length – organised by Rotary club members

The District 1060 Rotary Youth Leadership Award programme is held at the prestigious Warwickshire College in Morton Morrell near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire in early July. For full details of this year's programme and information on how you can take part, please visit

The RYLA programme gives young people and young adults the chance to improve leadership and communication skills, learn about businesses and institutions, explore career paths, share ideas and experiences, learn how to coordinate youth activities and community service projects in the community, and discuss creative approaches for resolving family, social, and professional conflicts.

Whether you are a secondary school student, university student, or young professional, RYLA provides a unique opportunity to learn, grow, have fun, and make new friends.
