RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership training program for young people.
RYLA participants from the Rotary Club of Whitby Sunrise are between the ages of 19-28  RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth. 
RYLA is a one week leadership training program that is delivered in May of each year.  A selected RYLA participant is given the opportunity to engage in a fantastic leadership experience with participants from other clubs to enhance their understanding of what they can achieve in their lives through team ethics and the ideal of service above self.  Participants selected to be sponsored by our club spend one week in an interactive learning environment at a university campus in southern Ontario.  RYLA provides an effective training experience for selected youth who  flourish and become community leaders and examples for other young people.
