Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership development program for young people. RYLA participants selected by our club are currently high school sophomores from either Westbrook or Gorham High School.  They will join with as many as 135+ other students from high schools around southern Maine and coastal New Hampshire for this adventure!

RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth, and aims to

  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth
  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth
  • Recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities
