How To... Get more mileage from your RYLA event Strong recruiting by Rotarians and diversity among the participants have been keys to the success of District 6450’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) events.
“RYLA is an effective way to combine Interactors, Rotaractors, and Youth Exchange students. It creates great exposure to all the possibilities of Rotary,” says Linda Yates, RYLA committee chair for the district, which covers parts of Illinois, USA.
