The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a very important aspect of the Rotary Program in the view of our Club. As without we could not have established or continue to get members as often as we do and of as high caliber as we do. Salisbury City Rotaract Club inc. has its members go each year, sponsors awardees and also has members who have gone on to team lead at the RYLA and RYPEN conferences held in the district.

What is RYLA?

RYLA is an annual 7 day residential for 18 – 26-year-olds sponsored by the Rotary Clubs within Rotary International District 9500 (SA/NT). RYLA is a life changing experience, it has the capacity to instill, motivate and develop future leaders in one of the most intensive leadership experiences available in South Australia.

RYLA empowers young individuals through a diverse range of qualified professional speakers and activities, touching on topics such as leadership styles, personality styles and working in teams.

The speakers leave awardees feeling motivated and inspired. RYLA’s youth team leaders also complement the experience through their informal activities (fun) and support. RYLA allows awardees to network and form friendships with a diverse range of like-minded youth, including those from an international background.
