GET EXCITED FOR RYLA!
September, 2018 in Heber, Utah
What is RYLA? RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Award. Participants are selected by a local Rotary Club to attend an all expense paid 3-day leadership conference designed to build character, teamwork, leadership and personal development. The “Award” part of RYLA is the actual scholarship the Rotary Club provides so that a participant may attend camp. Many participants have had life-changing experiences by attending RYLA Camp, and YOU could be one of those people!
Rotary District 5420 has hosted Utah RYLA for more than 1,500 students since 2001. Using the Heber Valley campground facilities near Heber, Utah, RYLA has trained young leaders through fun outdoor activities (such as a high/low ropes course), hands-on workshops, and a variety of presentations by world renowned speakers.
RYLA stresses the fundamentals and ethics of good leadership, problem solving, group building, and the importance of positive self-confidence and self-esteem. To advance leadership skills, one must put themselves in situations that will methodically train them to be a better leader. Through RYLA, specific programs and activities have been carefully chosen to do just that. In addition to the leadership activities, there are lots of fun activities and social events.
Are these goals you would like to achieve for yourself? If so, apply to participate in RYLA and join the many students from across Utah who have already benefited as young leaders. For more information about applying, contact your local Rotary club.
