RYLA is a week-long residential program for young people, 18 to 25 years old, who show potential for leadership in their communities. RYLA provides an opportunity for young people from a diverse range of backgrounds to come together to gain a better understanding of their own strengths and the unique qualities and abilities of others.

The program is delivered by young people for young people and is held in December each year. Participants can nominate themselves to participate or be nominated by their local Rotary clubs. The selection process includes a written application. Our club sponsors one young adult to attend this program.
