RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) is part of Rotary's ongoing commitment to supporting youth. Awards are based not only on academic standing but on demonstrated contribution and leadership benefiting the community, school, or other organizations.

The RYLA conference provides a unique opportunity for a selected group of young people to come together and participate in a fun and rewarding leadership conference. Participants will interact with other award winners, speakers, leaders and moderators from business, the professions, the arts or simply remarkable individuals who have had unique leadership experiences.

The RYLA conference has been declared, time after time, by those who attend, as an unforgettable experience which encouraged and assisted them in building upon their leadership qualities.
