Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this fun and uplifting program. Young people are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club’s district committee. The Utah RYLA program is a leadership camp help every fall that helps youth develop leadership skills through practice. The 2022 program will be held Wednesday, September 21 through Saturday, September 24.

For more information, please visit the Utah Rotary RYLA website.


RYLA costs $275 per student participant. Every year, the South Valley Rotary Club offers scholarships for students to attend. If you wish to apply for a RYLA Scholarship, please email for a RYLA application, along with a brief letter explaining why you should receive a RYLA scholarship.

As a note, priority is generally given to students entering their junior year of high school, but exceptions have been made.

Attending without a Scholarship:

It is not required that a student receive a scholarship to attend.  Students may pay their own way and submit a completed application to the district.  Students who wish to attend and pay their own way may email where they will be contacted about how and where to pay as well as other details that may need addressing.
