Rotary Youth Leadership Award
 

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary International’s leadership training program for young people.  Rotary District 7930 has a long-running annual program for high school students. Sophomores and juniors are invited to attend a weekend long event, where they learn leadership and life skills including goal setting, cultural understanding, problem solving, communication, public speaking, networking, community building, low and high ropes challenges, team building and more!
 
Your Rotary club can support RYLA by
  • Asking school administrators and Interact club advisers to promote RYLA
  • Inviting former RYLA participants to speak about their experience at a club meeting
  • Budgeting to send local participants to the district RYLA weekend
  • Recruiting young people with leadership potential in the community to attend district RYLA
  • Organizing RYLA reunions or follow-up events
  • Contacting your district RYLA chair to find out how your club can participate
