RYLA is an intense and incredibly challenging leadership program, sponsored by California and Nevada Rotary Districts 5180 of Northern California and 5190 of Northern Nevada, and has been designed to engender passion, resilience, determination, mental toughness, gratitude and compassion. In addition, the program will instill in the participants the value of Service above Self, a core Rotary belief.
You will also have the opportunity to participate in a character building program provided by the Grizzly Creek Ranch Ropes Course, which focuses on leadership, effective communication, trust and cooperation. Utilizing adventure, personal commitments and shared insights, you will gain an increased sense of confidence in yourselves and in your team.
Attendance at RYLA is supported by fully paid scholarships provided by the generosity of the men and women Rotarians of the 95 clubs in Rotary Districts 5180 and 5190 and takes place at the superb educational retreat at the Grizzly Creek Ranch located near Portola, California.
If you are selected to participate, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas about current issues and discuss leadership and personal development with knowledgeable local and regional leaders including many District Rotarians.
