What is RYLA?

The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) is a week-long residential personal development program for young people aged 19 to 25, which focuses on yourself, leadership and community. In Rotary District 9675, RYLA aims to: 
  • Give young people the chance to come together in a supportive environment to gain a better understanding of their own strengths and the unique qualities and abilities of others
  • Provide an opportunity for young people to develop a network of resources to facilitate their roles and development
  • Facilitate learning about teamwork, communication, motivation and to develop the leadership skills of young people through experiential workshops
  • Create a greater awareness of social issues affecting young people and
  • Demonstrate Rotary's commitment to young people.

When and Where is RYLA?

RYLA will be held at YMCA Camp, YARRAMUNDI – Sunday 5th January through Saturday January 11th.  Applications close 30th October 2019 (unless ALL 70x positions are filled).
RYLA assumes that 'leadership' is a diverse and varied concept and any one form or style of leadership is not seen as more important than any other.

A Rotarian decided life would be more fun if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store and told the owner that he wanted to buy an unusual pet.

After some discussion, he finally bought a talking centipede, which came in a little white box to use for his house.

He took the box back home, found a good spot for the box, and decided he would start off by taking his new pet to the pub for a drink with him.

So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go down the pub with me today? We will have a good time."

But there was no answer from his new pet.

This bothered him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked again, "How about going down the pub with me ?"

But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a few minutes more, thinking about the situation and starting to get suspicious decides if the centipede does not talk he will take it back to the shop for a refund.
Giving it one last try he puts he head close to the box and shouts "FANCY GOING TO THE PUB FOR A DRINK!!!!!"
The Centipede finally replies - "I heard you the first time you moron! I'm putting mt shoes on!"
