2022 Registration starts Feb 15, 2022

Rocky Mountain RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards)
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. RYLA encourages and assists current and potential youth leaders in methods of responsible and effective leadership. Many RYLArians have said, "It was the best week of my life!"

Rotary clubs in districts 5440 and 5450, throughout Central and Northern Colorado, Wyoming, Eastern Idaho and Western Nebraska sponsor students to participate in these 5-day leadership conferences known as Rocky Mountain RYLA.
