RYLA is a three day residential high energy program supporting and developing young leaders between the ages of 18 and 27.
RYLA recognises, encourages and educates current and future leaders through this intensive leadership training experience. The program demonstrates Rotary’s commitment to developing leaders.
Participants are selected for their demonstrated leadership potential in scholastic, athletic and civic activities. Today’s Rylarians are tomorrow’s leaders. We aim to send the Rylarians home better equipped to face the world by developing skills, understanding and confidence during their RYLA experience.
RYLA is run by Rotary District 9820 is an immersive 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.
