The Rotary Club of Eccleshall Mercia is now seeking a participant for RYLA (the Rotary Young Leadership Award program) who has a connection with Eccleshall, Gnosall, Yarnfield, Swynnerton, and Tittensor areas for one of the most successful programmes run by Rotary clubs around the world. RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, and personal growth and includes experiencing challenging situations.

The course is open to young people who are over 16 and under 18 on the 17 Aug 2018.

Participants attend a five-day residential camp organised by Rotarians with the support of professional trainers, at no cost to attendees. RYLA gives young people the chance to improve leadership and communication skills, explore career paths, share ideas and experiences, and discuss creative approaches for resolving family, social, and professional conflicts. A certificate for attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Camp is issued on completion of the course. This course is registered for the residential portion of the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.

It is a fun and intensive training programme for young people, offering potential leaders the chance to get a head start at an early age.

In 2017 the Rotary Club of Eccleshall Mercia sponsored Georgia who has said

“I can honestly say that RYLA is an outstanding opportunity and has been one of the best experiences of my life, I met so many wonderful people and learnt some life lessons that will definitely shape my future for the better.”
