GET EXCITED FOR RYLA!

September 2019 in Aspen Grove up beautiful Provo Canyon, 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. Participants have life-changing experiences at RYLA Camp, and YOU could be one of those people! To be selected to attend RYLA, you must contact your local Rotary club (email us if you don't know your local Rotary club).

Rotary District 5420 has hosted Utah RYLA for more than 1,500 students since 2001. At Aspen Grove up Provo Canyon, 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 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, we have a TON of fun.

Who is eligible?

  • Utah high school sophomores & juniors. We want students with a desire to develop their leadership skills, regardless of their academic performance or past leadership experience.
  • A student can only attend only once as a participant.
  • Students selected must commit to full participation in the program and attend camp on all dates. No late arrives or early departures will be allowed. No exceptions.
  • The number of students selected depends on the number of awards the local Rotary Club has available to give out for the year.
