The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) are Rotary International programmes run in New Zealand at district level. They aim to grow emerging leaders through providing an intensive leadership development programme. Participants take part in a range of experiences including seminars and group activities designed to develop both self leadership and leadership of others.
Below is a short video that will introduce you to RLYA in District 9930
In District 9930 RYLA is open to young people aged 20 – 26. Participants are selected by their local Rotary Club and sponsored to attend the course by their club or their employer.
The programme is designed in conjunction with the Institute of Professional Learning: Te Whai Toi Tangata, based in the Faculty of Education at the University of Waikato and is run by a committed group of Rotarians and University staff members.
Participants have the opportunity to grow and develop their leadership networks through being part of a cohort of emerging leaders, expanding their network of Rotarian contacts and meeting a range of prominent local leaders. RYLA is held at Epworth Recreation Centre, on Lake Karapiro in April each year and applications close on 28 February of that year.
RYLA 2017 will be held 23rd – 28th April
