New Generations

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a three-day Leadership Conference. It is a reward for outstanding youth to further develop their leadership skills. Sponsored by the 58 Rotary Clubs in Distinct 5330 (San Bernardino & Riverside Counties), RYLA combines learning in a casual, relaxed atmosphere with social and fun time to provide a fast paced and memorable leadership experience.
Students report to a designated bus pickup location on the Friday of their weekend. They will return Sunday afternoon of their selected weekend. Exact details will be sent in a letter to all award winners.
Approximately 460+ High School Juniors selected from all public and private high schools within District 5330 attend, along with 60 Rotarians and additional camp staff.
High School Juniors are selected on the basis of leadership potential, personal values, intelligence, and potential for future success. The selection process may vary, but each school is asked to nominate outstanding juniors. The sponsoring Rotary club appoints a screening committee to make the final selections.
