Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

The 2008-09 RYLA Committee is currently accepting applications to the 2009 International RYLA for both youth participants and counselors. The 2009 International RYLA will be held 19-21 June 2009 in Birmingham, England, immediately preceding the 100th Rotary International Convention.
The International RYLA provides participants with a one-of-a-kind experience to learn advanced leadership techniques through group discussions and training, as well as offering them the unique opportunity to meet and network on an international level with other exceptional young leaders from across the world. More information on this meeting can be found by downloading this online guide document.
Applications for participants will be considered from all youth between the ages 18-30 that have extensive experience with Rotary or Rotary Foundation programs. This includes alumni from Interact, Rotaract, local district RYLAs, Youth Exchange, and Ambassadorial Scholarship programs. Please note that Rotarians, as well as past International RYLA alumni are ineligible to apply as participants for this meeting. However, these individuals can apply to serve as a meeting facilitator and counselor, fulfilling an essential role in making the participants’ experience truly memorable.
