About RYLA
One  of the most popular of Rotary's Youth  programs RYLA is for young people  aged 19 to 25. It is a  week-long residential personal development program , which focuses on yourself, leadership and community. In Rotary District 9675, RYLA aims to: -
  • Give young people the chance to come together in a supportive environment to gain a better understanding of their own strengths and the unique qualities and abilities of others
  • Provide an opportunity for young people to develop a network of resources to facilitate their roles and development.
  • Facilitate learning about teamwork, communication, motivation and to develop the leadership skills of young people through experiential workshops.
  • Create a greater awareness of social issues affecting young people and
  • Demonstrate Rotary's commitment to young people.
Everyone’s experience of RYLA is unique. What you can expect though, is to meet people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, and to hear from a series of speakers, all with different perspectives on leadership, personal development and community
Some speakers will challenge you and what you believe, but hopefully some will also connect with you, or inspire you. RYLA assumes that 'leadership' is a diverse and varied concept and any one form or style of leadership is not seen as more important than any other.
Intending candidates please note that as this conference is a week long, selected candidates must be able to commit to the full conference. In addition for those working candidates it is essential that you seek release from your employer.
Successful applicant(s) applying through the Rotary Club of Engadine will be sponsored by and provide transport to and from the camp by Engadine Rotary
