ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARDS (RYLA)
RYLA is a 7 day program sponsored by Rotary Clubs to develop leadership and social skills in young people aged 18 – 26 years. It assists those who are destined to be future community leaders or business leaders.
 
This year the camp will be held at Luther Heights, Coolum Beach.
 
See the RYLA Brochure here.
 
The cost for this week-long leadership training seminar is $850. The speakers are high profile leaders of their field in the community, and many observers have rated the cost of this course on a commercial basis at around $5,000. It is definitely good value for money.
 
If you are a young person in this age group and feel that you would like to take part in this program, please contact us.

The Rotary Youth Leadership Award’s (RYLA) humble beginnings date back to 1959, when the Queensland Government invited local Rotarians to help plan a festival celebrating its upcoming centenary. Learning that Queen Elizabeth II was sending her cousin Princess Alexandra, who was in her early 20s, to the celebration, Rotarians planned activities specifically for the Princess' age group.
 
D9600 RYLA has come a long way since then. Officially adopted by Rotary International in 1971, this exciting program engages Rotary clubs and districts around the world.
 
RYLA will be an unforgettable experience in life, learning from experience, and experiences. The program’s aim is to give young people personal, leadership, and citizenship skills to succeed in all areas of their life. RYLA will give young adults (18 - 26 yrs) the opportunity to learn from other like-minded people and make new friends, while being challenged both physically and mentally on their road to self-discovery.
 
This experiential learning opportunity will enable individuals to discover their uniqueness and how to communicate, work with others, and embrace change. RYLA participants will be from a variety of areas such as: the business community; the self employed; educational institutions; government agencies; community associations; Rotaractors; and service organisations.
 
Participants will be transported by bus (a valuable part of their bonding experience) to and from Luther Heights, arriving Saturday 5 May and departing Friday 11 May 2018. The program covers 7 very full days of activities and speakers together with social and Rotary functions at night. The seminar program will start at 0600 and conclude at 2300 each day.
APPLICATIONS CLOSE: 3 April 2018. Due to Venue & Bus T&Cs, no refund will be given after that date.
