Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a program for 11th grade students in San Diego and Imperial Counties. Started in 1972, RYLA helps high school juniors nurture and develop a wide array of skills, including fundamentals of leadership, ethics of positive leadership, and the qualities of a "servant leader." RYLA also stresses the importance of communication skills in effective leadership, while helping develop conflict management and problem solving skills. RYLA participants also build self-esteem and self confidence, and promote elements of community and global citizenship.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The organization is dedicated to helping Rotary clubs prosper and thrive, through leadership development, training, grant management, intra-club events, risk management, and general administrative support. The organization also hosts several district wide programs, primarily aimed at supporting youth.

Rotary District 5340 fulfills its mission through in-person club visits, and regular training (both in-person and electronic). Volunteer committee chairs within the district provide support and guidance in a variety of topics, including district grants, membership, strategic development, vocational service, fundraising, and more. Each year, all incoming Club Presidents attend a multi-day President Elect Training Seminar (PETS) to help provide leadership training and development. When it comes to supporting youth within the community, Rotary District 5340 hosts a number of programs including Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), LEAD (Leadership, Ethics, Aspirations & Determination), Model United Nations, as well as a joint collaboration with San Diego Youth Symphony called MusiCamp™. Rotary District 5340 supports high school students on their campus through Interact clubs, as well as college-age and young professionals through Rotaract clubs. On a global level, Rotary District 5340 helps promote peace and understanding of different cultures through Youth Exchange. First established in 1929, Youth Exchange is a program that encourages and fosters an international cultural experience for students age 15-1/2 to 18. Every year, Rotary's Youth Exchange program hosts over 9,000 participants across the globe.

Rotary District 5340 has over 3,100 members across three counties in Southern California. Rotary members are professionals and leaders within their industries, all brought together with the shared goal of improving the communities in which they live and work. Rotary District 5340 is the local chapter of Rotary International, which has 1.2 million members and more than 35,000 clubs in more than 200 countries around the globe.

Since the first Rotary club was established in San Diego over 100 years ago, Rotary has been having a positive impact on the local and global community. Thousands of Rotary members, both past and present, have left indelible marks in supporting youth, developing leadership, providing community service, or generally improving the local area. Across the globe, Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever. These areas of focus include 1) promoting peace, 2) fighting disease, 3) providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, 4) saving mothers and children, 5) supporting education, and 6) growing local economies. There is more work to be done, and Rotary District 5340 will continue to play a major role in all of these areas of focus, including the global eradication of polio.
