Rotary Youth Leadership Awards –
March 29-31, 2019

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive, two-and-a-half-day leadership training program for high school sophomores and juniors in District 5300 chosen for their leadership potential. In addition to the development of leadership skills, RYLA is meant to develop understanding of Rotary among youth participants and reinforce and provide recognition for their efforts, accomplishments, skills and potential as leaders. Rotarians serve as facilitators to the students’ learning and discovery, as well as role models of Rotary ideals of the Four Way Test and Service Above Self.
