RLI is the best training vehicle we currently have in Rotary, since it creates the kind of engaged and motivated leaders that your club will need to move forward. We are still recognized as one of the best districts for membership growth in all of Zones 24 and 32 (that's 34 districts!). It is because we are one of the most active in RLI, and the leaders in sponsoring new Rotary members are often RLI grads!

The Rotary Youth Leadership Academy



This year RYLA will be held in Penticton on May 23 to 26, 2019. Do you know a young person between 19 and 24 who could benefit from this life changing experience? Talk to your club Youth Services Director about sponsoring a candidate.

Check the District website under Youth Services for a link to the RYLA web page.


Who Benefits from RYLA

Why does our District do the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy? Well RYLA has had a long history in our district and over the years hundreds of young people have been given a head start to becoming the leaders we all need. Who benefits from doing this?

So, the first group to benefit are obviously the young people in the program. A team of experienced managers deliver a program that the participants have described as "life changing." They get to learn and practice the skills that are needed to lead a modern and diverse workplace. The academy features a number of practical leadership situations that the students need to work through. They learn that the process can be fun.

The second group will be the RYLA delivery team. The prospect of helping others to make our world a bit better offers a great sense of accomplishment. As anything that is worthwhile, it takes a great deal of work and commitment to deliver, but there is no better feeling at the end.

The third group to benefit is the individual Rotary Club who sponsor their candidates to RYLA. These young people are exposed to Rotary and many times go on to join Rotoract. That can become a great feed for members for that Club.


The fourth group to benefit are the businesses in your area. These are likely your friends and business acquaintances in your community. Businesses both small and large tend to put this type of training last on their list for developing employees. In fact, doing the leadership training up front gives a business more resources to draw on. If you think about your own business, how much would you pay to have a person who actively sought to solve problems rather than remain on the sidelines while you had to struggle to do that?

Who are the target candidates for the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy?

You may well ask that question as you help your club search for a candidate. Of course, first to mind are those people who are already in junior leadership positions. That could be in businesses or non-profit / volunteer organizations in your community. Giving these junior leaders some formalized training can help them to be more effective and perhaps find their job more enjoyable.

The second group who come to mind are those people who seem to have leadership traits, but who have not yet had the chance to take a position. Once these people get the opportunity, the training they had at RYLA kicks in. They will make fewer mistakes in the early period of taking on a leadership position. They will be more confident to take on the task of getting people to do more than what those people thought they were capable of.

The third group is a bit less noticeable. Some young people just need someone in their life to tell them what they are capable of. It is serious that so many of our youth are never told that they have the capacity to be tomorrow's leaders much less that they have something to offer other people. Quite a few graduates of the RYLA program fall into this group and these young people represent our greatest accomplishments.

Support RYLA by finding a candidate to sponsor or by supporting a candidate from the district.

I am a member of the Rotary Club of Kelowna.

I would like to make contact with clubs in our district that:

1) Are working with Habitat for Humanity--- I would like to learn what
they are doing and how well it's working out. I will use that information to
develop a plan for our club and the local HFH.

2) I would also like to make contact with Canadian clubs in our district
that have foundations. The purpose here would be to share best practices
between my club's foundation and other club's foundations.

If you have information on working with HFH I would love to hear from you.
You can contact me at:

Thanks so much!
