It is a captivating fusion of interactive workshops, immersive experiences, and dynamic mentorship, all carefully crafted to unlock the full potential of each participant.

About RYLA

At its essence, Rotary is about fun, fellowship and service to the community. RYLA is an event organized by Rotary and Rotaract Clubs that encapsulates all these whilst motivating young people to network and strive for greatness.

Introduced in 1971, RYLA was envisioned to bring together participants aged 14-30 to engage in a few days’ retreat filled with activities such as presentations, workshops, community service and team-building. Safe to say that if RYLA has been in existence for that long, they must be doing something right…right? Right.
