Calling All 16-17 Year Olds!

Wanting to work in a team, learn things about yourself and leadership? Then this is for you! Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development programme run by Rotary for young people.

The RYLA programme will provide you with the opportunity to experience so much – about yourself, working in a team, leading and supervising other people. These are skills employers look for in the workplace.

The selected activities on the RYLA programme are all based on elements of problem solving:

  • Communication
  • Organisation
  • Delegation
  • Teamwork

Whilst many of the activities take place outside, in the Cairngorm National Park, it is not an outward bound course!

There are a variety of activities to develop you as an individual, as a team member and as a leader of a team, in a safe and enjoyable environment …

There is no assessment, and no pass or fail, on this course. There are no limits on your development.

The course’s aim is to help you realise your potential.



  • Girls Camp: 8th – 15th July 2023
  • Boys Camp: 15th – 22nd July 2023


How to apply

The programme is open to young people who are 16 and 17 years old from all types of youth groups, schools or apprenticeships.

Each participant is sponsored by their local Rotary club.
