A personal development of 8 days (7 nights) activities including:
Being a leader is not just about being confident enough to speak out and knowing what to say, it is knowing when to listen to others and understand. RYLA teaches this, and other soft skills, to help everyone to be the best they can be.
Teamwork exercises bring people together from different walks of life in a safe environment where everyone can get to know each other without fear of exclusion or negativity.
As with all Rotary programmes, Rotary members are appropriately DBS checked and risk assessments are carried out for all activities.
You don’t need to be a high achiever with outstanding academic grades, just be willing to try something new through activity-based learning and discover new talents along the way, as well as having fun.
RYLA programmes involve physical challenges so can be demanding. Some degree of fitness is required.
The District 1070 RYLA course is open to people aged 18 to 26. ( For students aged 13-16 see Young RYLA on the right)
This course is considered to be the finest of its type in ‘Rotary In Great Britain & Ireland’.
Applicants must commit themselves to the whole week.
The course is designed on a basis of team competition with each day building on the knowledge and experience gained in the previous days. Any time lost is to the detriment of the awardee, the team and the whole group.
Rotary clubs please note: It is essential to have a reserve awardee to cover for last minute illness etc. Perhaps this year’s reserve could become next year’s priority choice.
