What does RYLA Offer?
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is all about Rotarians, professionals in your local community, working with youth to develop our future leaders. It is an intensive training/experiential program for high school students in their pivotal high school years, who are chosen for their proven or potential leadership abilities. Students participate in an all-expense paid retreat, this year held in a virtual setting (eRYLA). The camp is run by Rotary members and RYLA Alumni. Student attendance is sponsored by Rotary Clubs, which means attendance is free for qualified high school students. Students are joined by talented young people from communities throughout the district. eRYLA provides a memorable opportunity to learn, grow, have fun, make new friends, and gain a new and improved focus.
The core curriculum for RYLA includes the following:
What is the structure of camp?
Each camper is assigned to a team of up to 10 students. This team serves as each student’s family for eRYLA. Students will do many activities with their team, as well as some activities with other students from different teams, so they can meet more. In addition, there will be several activities done as a whole camp.
What should I expect?
eRYLA uses team problem-solving sessions, cooperative games, and competitions for young people across the state. All camp activities are designed with the objective of providing an atmosphere where campers will experience learning situations to help develop their own unique strengths and abilities to become future leaders.
