Why nominate your students for RYLA?

Quality RYLA nominations help drive success on your campus. If your students could benefit from a peer who will act as a catalyst for change and ambassador for advancement, consider carefully who the best potential candidates are, and recommend them for a Rotary Youth Leadership Award, so they might attend Camp RYLA and help be the change they wish to see in the world. RYLA is a refining process; one that takes above-average students and pushes them to their limits, demanding excellence and compassion, character and tolerance. Students who attend RYLA come back to their schools and communities with a revived love for their peers, a new perspective for their world, and an unmatched energy for positive change. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity —give your students a chance to never be the same.
