Help Rotary raise awareness for polio eradication and the importance of vaccines during World Immunization Week, 24-30 April. Show your commitment by sharing some of these sample posts on social media.

What is RYLA?
 
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience sponsored by Rotary International and organized by Rotary clubs and districts where young people can develop leadership skills while having fun and making connections. 
 
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.
·         Publicly recognize young people who are rendering service to their communities.
 
Great Plains RYLA, sponsored by District 5630 and District 5610, serves youth who are high school sophomores and juniors.
 
RYLA consists of an all-expense paid five-day conference which brings together this special group of young men and women. Activities, including problem solving games, a challenge course, group discussions and team-building activities, help participants build confidence and leadership skills; becoming the leader they were meant to become!  Additional information on RYLA can be found at https://greatplainsryla.org/.
 
Thank you!
