ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARD (RYLA)

 

 What is RYLA?
The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is a week-long residential personal development program for young people aged 18 to 25, which focuses on yourself, leadership and community. The Rotary Club of Glen Waverley are strong supporters of this initiative and, each year, sponsor local young people to take part.

We always ask them to come back to the club and report on their experience. Their enthusiasm is mind-blasting!

 

 Objectives of RYLA

  • 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
 
 

This group reported back last year on their experiences at RYLA. We have no idea what this strange salute means other than that they appear to have a wonderful time!
