WHAT IS RYLA?
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an international program that was created by Rotary International to encourage strong leadership in youth. Young people chosen for their leadership potential attend an all-expenses-paid camp to develop and enhance leadership skills through activities conducted in an atmosphere of trust and respect. RYLA aims to teach what it takes to be an effective leader.
Rotary is a service organization of business and professional men and women united worldwide who conduct humanitarian projects, encourage high standards in all vocations and work toward world understanding and peace.
