Welcome to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards ("RYLA") for Rotary District 7450, comprised of 51 Rotary Clubs in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Leadership is an essential aspect of Rotary—and we offer both clubs and programs to help emerging leaders develop their skills. Through these groups, participants strengthen their leadership skills, serve their communities, increase their world understanding, build friendships, and more.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. In District 7450, our program is focused on High School students in their Sophomore year, although exceptions are made. Our RYLA program runs from Friday to Sunday and includes presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:
- Leadership fundamentals and ethics
- Communication skills
- Problem solving and conflict management
- Community and global citizenship
