Tumwater Rotary Information

Our new Youth/Vocation Services Chair Beth Scouller, following Wayne Beckwith's excellent leadership, has taken on one of Rotary's most valuable youth programs. RYLA  teaches the youth today about Leadership Skills and Community Services results in the Local and Global Citizen Leaders of tomorrow.  Beth is currently working with the two high school counselors to select this year's recipients for the March 10-13, 2016 program.  Following their completion of their leadership weekend, they will be reporting to the club their experiences.

 

What is RYLA?

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a program that originated with Rotary International. RYLA encourages servant leadership in youth by recognizing and rewarding deserving 11th grade students who are chosen to attend RYLA as an "award" for their past and present leadership and service activities. These select young people attend an all-expenses-paid camp where they are inspired by a diverse group of exceptional speakers, make life-long friends through fellowship activities, and discuss the ethical and social issues of today. These activities are conducted in an atmosphere of trust and respect. The result is that these students return to their schools and communities motivated to take on additional leadership roles and to find additional ways to serve. 

RYLA's intent is to encourage students to be more effective servant leaders. RYLA is not a camp intended to teach leadership skills (it is assumed that the students in attendance already possess those skills), however the following topics naturally arise in the course of RYLA activities and discussions:

Fundamentals of leadership
Ethics of positive leadership
Qualities of a "servant leader" 
Importance of communication skills in effective leadership
Conflict management and problem solving
Building self-esteem and self confidence
Elements of community and global citizenship
Rotary's purpose of service to the community and world

For more information about RYLA in our District 5020 please refer to the RYLA documents in the download section of this website.
