The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is one of the most successful Rotary programs run by Rotary clubs
around the world. The fun and intensive training program for 15 to 30 year olds offers the leaders of the future a
chance to get a head start at an early age.
The RYLA program gives young people and young adults the chance to improve leadership and communication
skills, learn about businesses and institutions, explore career paths, share ideas and experiences, learn how to
coordinate youth activities and community service projects in the community, and discuss creative approaches for
resolving family, social, and professional conflicts.
In Rotary District 7810, RYLA aims to:
• Give young people the chance to come together in a supportive environment to gain a better understanding of
their own strengths and the unique qualities and abilities of others
• Facilitate learning about teamwork, communication, motivation and to develop the leadership skills of young
people through experiential workshops
• Create a greater awareness of social issues affecting young people and
• Demonstrate Rotary's commitment to young people.
