Emerging Leaders

Are you an emerging leader between the ages of 18-35? Are you entering the workforce or currently in an entry-level job, but want to learn the skills to grow professionally? Then the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program is for you.
RYLA participants are exposed to values that Rotarians deem essential for those who hold leadership roles: ethical behavior, integrity of character, and a commitment to community service. The program gives awardees an opportunity to:
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Increase self-confidence & self-esteem
  • Meet community leaders and mentors
  • Gain exposure to a variety of issues and people
  • Learn about Rotary International (and potentially join a local club!)
  • Make lifelong memories
Emerging leaders from Maine and Quebec are encouraged to apply for this program. This experience has numerous physical and mental challenges, which test logic and communication skills, encourage teamwork, and enable emerging leaders to build confidence and overcome personal obstacles. Selected participants will receive scholarship assistance from the Camden Rotary Club.
