RYLA recognises, encourages and educates current and future leaders through this intensive leadership training experience. The program demonstrates Rotary’s commitment to developing leaders.

Today’s Rylarians are tomorrow’s leaders.

We aim to send each Rylarian home better equipped to face the world by developing skills, understanding and confidence during their RYLA experience.

RYLA run by Rotary District 9820 is an immersive 3 day program with thought provoking plenaries, discussion moderators, and professional facilitators from many disciplines. Discussions and experiential sessions focus on what leadership is, qualities of leadership, team-building activities, time and stress management.
Graduates of previous RYLA programs report the course was fantastic opportunity to develop their skills, have fun, and meet an enthusiastic group of like-minded people. RYLA is a life changing experience, so take the challenge and apply today.
