Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs across the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people ages 14–30 are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club's district committee. Our club sends students to our local District 5330 RYLA camps at Thousand Pines Conference Center in Crestline. The event is so popular it was split into two weekend camps this year to double the participation. Eleventh grade students are chosen for their leadership potential. Rotary Clubs and the Rotary District cover all expenses for the participants. The format of the event takes the form of a camp and workshop experience to discuss leadership skills and to learn those skills through practice. Local Rotary clubs select the participants and facilitate the curriculum.
