“ROTARY YOUTH LEADERSHIP AWARDS” is a program designed to shape leadership skills in High School Sophomore and Junior Students who already possess and demonstrate outstanding leadership characteristics in their high school and community. RYLA Camp is a youth retreat with the main objective being to expose students to the many phases of leadership by learning from individuals who are already leaders in their community and businesses. Students attending the RYLA camp should leave the seminar with a better understanding of how to assume a positive leadership role in their school and community.
The Rockport Rotary Club sent four students to RYLA this year - some for their first time and some returning as Trailblazers. Our Youth Services Director Adelaide Marlatt coordinated with HS counselors for the selection of the students.  Read More about the RYLA program.
