Do you have what it takes to become a dynamic leader and change yourself and the world?

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where you develop your skills as a leader while having fun and making connections.

What are the benefits?

Connect with leaders in your community and around the world to:

  • Build communication and problem-solving skills
  • Discover strategies for becoming a dynamic leader in your school or community
  • Learn from community leaders, inspirational speakers, and peer mentors
  • Unlock your potential to turn motivation into action
  • Have fun and form lasting friendships

What’s involved?

RYLA events are organized locally by Rotary clubs and districts for participants ages 14-30. Depending on community needs, RYLA may take the form of a one-day seminar, a three-day retreat, or a weeklong camp. Typically, events last 3-10 days and include presentations, activities, and workshops covering a variety of topics.

Your community might host a RYLA event for secondary school students to hone their leadership potential, for university students to develop creative problem-solving strategies, or for young professionals to learn ethical business practices.

How can I participate?

RYLA participants are nominated by local Rotary clubs. Contact your local Rotary club to find out more about RYLA events in your area, how to apply, and any costs of getting involved.

Best wishes from all our members to you!
The Rotary Club of Invermere has selected The Invermere Health Care Auxiliary Society, and the Thrift Store Volunteers as Citizens of the Year for the year 2017!
 

The Rotary club of Invermere contributed to the global grant for the water project in Los Naranjos, Honduras.    The project is complete now and 1200 people have clean water.   Here are a few photos.   11 km was dug by hand - 40 men worked each day - one day per week - 280 men in total working every week for about 10 weeks to dig the 11 km ditch by hand and install the pipe.    They put on a wonderful party for us a few weeks ago when we were in Honduras.    Thank you again for helping make this project a reality.     Be well.    Gwen Telling   Creston Rotary
