Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive, two-and-a-half-day leadership training program for high school juniors in District 5300 chosen for their leadership potential. The event is usually held in April at a conference center in the San Bernadino mountains. In addition to the development of leadership skills, RYLA is meant to develop understanding of Rotary among youth participants and reinforce and provide recognition for their efforts, accomplishments, skills and potential as leaders.  Rotarians serve as facilitators to the students’ learning and discovery, as well as role models of Rotary ideals of the Four Way Test and Service Above Self.

Our Pasadena Club needs Rotarians to help interview and select the students. In addition, we need to send a minimum of two facilitators. Facilitators will travel with the students on the bus, which leaves early Friday morning and returns Sunday afternoon. Facilitators will be assigned a group of 10-12 students, which you will oversee the entire weekend. It's a wonderful opportunity to observe, coach and mentor our future leaders.
