The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program is awarded to young and aspiring community leaders by local Rotary Clubs. The young leaders challenge themselves over a 7 day conference that focuses on soft skills, leadership fundamentals and developing our next generation of community leaders.


If you wish to attend RYLA, follow the following steps:

Complete the expression of interest form and make an $80 payment for attendance (this will be refunded if we cannot connect you to a club).
If you haven’t provided details of your sponsoring Rotary Club, you will be linked to a local club who will arrange a time for you to meet with them to discuss your application.
You complete a medical form and will be advised of the details for transport to the conference. Your sponsoring Rotary Club will take you to a bus stop.

Attend RYLA.

Following RYLA you will be asked to present at your sponsoring Rotary Club about your experiences at the conference and be involved in at least two of their community projects.


RYLA is a fantastic professional and personal development opportunity for your young adults and is heavily subsidised by Rotary Clubs; funding from this program is from community donations and grants. You will be asked to make an $80 contribution for your attendance. This will be refunded to you if we cannot find a Rotary Club to sponsor your attendance.
