Rocky Mountain RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
The Rotary Club of Wheat Ridge supports Rocky Mountain RYLA and Young RYLA
We have seen many success stories over the years, and we encourage students to take part in this leadership program.
RYLA is a life-changing leadership training program for young men and women where leadership skills and principles are learned, developed and enhanced in an atmosphere of trust and respect. The purpose of RYLA is to encourage and assist current and potential youth leaders in methods of responsible and effective leadership. Many past RYLArians have said, “It was the best week of my life!”
