The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) recognised throughout the world run by Adventure Instructors under the guidance of business professionals and Rotarians. Successful attendance on the course also meets the Gold residential requirements for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. 

The RYLA programme gives young people the chance to improve their leadership, team working and communication skills, respect for the environment and learn public speaking skills.

The RYLA programme provides a unique opportunity to learn, grow, have fun, and make new friends.
