To the RYLA Hawaii Class of 2021,
You went above and beyond our expectations. We appreciate your dedication, time and willingness to learn. We know that you will make a positive difference in our community, state, and world.
2021 RYLA Planning Committee
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership training and development program designed for high school students, open to all local public, private, and home-schooled students.
RYLA Hawai'i hosts an interactive overnight camp on each of the main islands, however for 2021, Rotary International's District 5000 Rotary Clubs are hosting a Statewide Virtual RYLA program in February.
Coming in 2022!
WHAT HAPPENS DURING RYLA?
As a RYLA participant, you will experience a broad range of activities that encourage you to think about leadership principles and how to apply them in life. Adult Alaka'i Rotary Facilitators and student Youth Facilitators will take you through a variety of experiences, including virtual interactive games, activities and guided discussions on topics of leadership that you can relate to. Students from all across Hawai'i will participate in this virtual program that promises to empower and challenge you to become proactive in your school and community.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS ALL COST?
The total cost of your Virtual RYLA weekend is $100 ~ but this cost will be entirely covered by your local Rotary Clubs. What that means is the RYLA weekend experience will be FREE to those accepted into the program.
