Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive training program for community youth leaders. Talented young people attend an all-expense-paid seminar, camp or workshop, generally three to ten days in length, organized and run by Rotarians with records of achievement.
The program enables young people to debate problems of professional responsibility and human relations, learn about and possibly visit businesses or institutions, and encounter Rotarians – all while having fun and making friends. For members of the New Generations, RYLA affords the opportunity to refine skills and explore topics of interest to their age group; for Rotarians, the chance to help develop leaders and good citizens and bridge the gap between generations.
