Igniting Potential
& Empowering Change

Our annual conference...
unites leaders and empowers them to foster mutual growth and success. The Rotary Youth Leadership Award, known as RYLA, is an annual conference hosted by Rotary International Districts worldwide. At RYLA conferences, young leaders discover themselves, each other, and their communities. RYLA graduates support and challenge one another to form a better society through the Rotary International motto of Service Above Self.
