Lebanon High School students Kelsey and Charlie visited the Rotary Club of Lebanon, Ohio to share their stories from RYLA 2021. The Rotary Club of Lebanon, Ohio sponsors students each year to attend RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
RYLA is an intensive training program for youth ages 14-18. Talented young people attend a seminar, camp, and workshops.
The RYLA program enables young people to debate issues of professional responsibility and human relations, improve leadership and communication skills, learn about businesses and institutions, and meet Rotarians while having fun and making friends.
For young adults, RYLA provides the opportunity to refine skills and explore pertinent topics with their peers and elders. For Rotarians, RYLA offers the chance to help develop leaders, share valuable expertise, and bridge the gap between generations.
