Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. Participants must be juniors in high school. RYLA is a three day camp held every year in the spring and includes team activities and workshops that develop leadership skills and help the participants create life-long friendships. The focus RYLA is on:
Leadership fundamentals and ethics
