RYLA - Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

RYLA gives our club the opportunity to develop young leaders while inspiring them to connect, exchange ideas, and take action in their schools and communities.

What is RYLA?

RYLA is a leadership development program that is organized at the club, district, or multidistrict level. The format of your event depends on what you hope to accomplish, your resources, and your audience – it could be a one-day seminar, a three-day retreat, or a weeklong camp.

While participants can be any age, most events focus on secondary school students, university students, or young adults. You can use RYLA to engage at-risk youth, motivate Interact or Rotaract club officers, reconnect with Rotary alumni, or mentor young professionals to become responsible leaders.
