Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where student leaders develop their leadership and teambuilding skills while having fun and making connections. Although RYLA conferences are typically held in-person, RYLA Ascend is a digital program, occurring in February 28 – March 28, around students’ school schedules.

Students will review video materials on their own, participate in workshops, and join activities and discussions with their small groups, led by RYLA alumni. Students will meet on Sunday and Wednesday nights, although students may schedule additional meetings of their small groups as needed.
