Engaging the next generation of Rotary leaders
RYLA handbook now available in languages!
Each year, approximately 50,000 young leaders gain the knowledge and skills they need to make real change locally and globally through participation in a RYLA event!

In this resource, you will find step-by-step guidance to support the development safe, meaningful, and fun RYLA programs for all participants.

Interact Nurtures a Passion to Do Good 
An Interact Advisory Council member shares her passion for Interact and why service plays a huge role in the lives of young people in her community.  "Volunteering plays a crucial role in holistic development. Instead of trying to find the next step, we have learned to immerse ourselves in the process and craft our own paths naturally."
- Hiya Jain, 2021-22 Interact Advisory Council
