Rotary Youth Leadership Awards is an intensive training program for high school freshmen. It is a combination of seminars, interactive meetings and hands-on service projects.

RYLAs are designed for young adults with proven leadership ability and a commitment to community service. RYLA will help you discover your potential and develop the skills needed to be a leader in your community, school and everyday life.

Through RYLA, you can:

  • Develop leadership skills and character
  • Gain exposure to a variety of issues and people
  • Meet active community leaders
  • Learn valuable information and career skills

All the while, you’ll also have fun, build friendships and create memories that will last a lifetime.


RYLA participants are usually nominated by local Rotary Clubs, which often cover all expenses associated with the program.

The 2020 District 7545 RYLA will be held May 8-10 at WVU Jackson’s Mill, Jane Lew, West Virginia.
Updated forms available after January 1, 2020.
