Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary’s leadership training program for young people. RYLA participants can be ages 14-30, but most clubs and districts choose to focus on a narrower age range, such as 14-18 or 19-30. RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to:


1. Demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth.
2. Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders.
3. Encourage leadership of youth by youth.
4. Recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities.


This year RYLA will be held at Camp ASCA from March 14th- 17th, 2013.


Applications are due by Friday, January 18th and will be reviewed the week of January 21st.


For any questions, interested applicants can email Aimee at or call 454-2233 for more information.
