Rotary Youth Leadership Award
Thursday May 22rd to Sunday May 25th 2014
Naramata Centre, Naramata, B.C.


What is RYLA?

Strong Leaders are made, not born. Leadership skills are learned; not inherited.

Rotary Clubs around the world are dedicated to helping young people develop their leadership skills to the fullest. RYLA stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Award.

Each spring local Rotary Clubs from across North Central Washington and the Southern Interior of BC present selected young adults the “award” of a leadership development seminar. The RYLA seminar will assist young people to realize their leadership potential and adapt their experiences to life in their communities.

For four days from Thursday afternoon May 22nd to Sunday afternoon May 25th, a group of approximately 40 young adults (19-24) will gather at the Naramata Centre north of Penticton, BC.

The weekend is a remarkable opportunity to meet and learn with outstanding young representatives from both the US and Canada.

Naramata is located on Okanagan Lake in a beautiful setting. It will be, as one RYLA 2007 participant said: ”Spectacular! I absolutely loved it!”
