Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA)
University of Kansas
Lawrence, Kansas
June 3 - June 7, 2018
A Week to Change Your Life! 
RYLA 2018 is a five-day camp for incoming high school sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in developing leadership potential. The students will learn from business and community leaders about strengthening their leadership skills and abilities, promoting ethical behavior, and facilitating personal growth and self-awareness. There are several past participants of this program that stated their experience was life-changing and made them more aware of their capabilities. It is common to see a student become emotional when talking about their experience with RYLA. For many students, this is their first exposure to Rotary and what we, as Rotarians, can accomplish. The projects and exercises in this five-day camp are designed to get the students to think differently about certain situations and develop their own solutions with fellow students they may have not met before attending the camp. Many students worldwide, who have attended RYLA, have continued on to become members of an Interact, Rotaract, and eventually a Rotary club.
 

The University of Kansas in Lawrence will once again host District 5710's Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA).  The cost per student is $325 ($300 registration fee paid by the sponsoring club and $25 application fee paid by the student).  85 students attended last year's RYLA, engaging in a wide range of leadership development, team-building, civic engagement, and community service activities.
