Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where you develop your skills as a leader while having fun and making connections.
You will connect with leaders in your community to:
  • Build communication and problem-solving skills
  • Discover strategies for becoming a dynamic leader in your school or community
  • Learn from community leaders, inspirational speakers, and peer mentors
  • Unlock your potential to turn motivation into action
  • Have fun and form lasting friendships
RYLA events are organized locally by Rotary clubs and districts for participants ages 14-18. Depending on community needs, RYLA may take the form of a three-day retreat or a weeklong camp. Typically, events last 3-7 days and include presentations, activities, and workshops covering a variety of topics.
