Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, or RYLA, is a training program for future leaders who are currently Juniors in High School.  As a RYLA participant, you will attend an all-expense-paid 6-day camp at the Grizzly Creek Ranch, in Portola, CA.  About 100 talented young people will spend this week in challenging discussion programs, inspirational addresses, leadership training, and social activities, all designed to enhance personal development, leadership skills, and good citizenship.  For students hoping to pursue their studies, this is a tremendous opportunity to prepare for life’s challenges.  Over the years, all participants have emphasized that this life-changing opportunity was beyond their dreams and truly helped prepare them for future leadership roles.
