A Message to our Guidance Counselors
The RYLA program has been in place for many years to help our young leaders develop their leadership skills. On behalf of the 1600 Rotarians across throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area, we are pleased to support this program. We understand the importance of developing our future leaders and RYLA is a key to our strategy to developing our future leaders.
This program is sponsored by Rotary Clubs throughout the District and our partnership with School Guidance Counselors is critical to the success of the program.
What Role do Guidance Counselors Play?
Organizing and delivering a successful RYLA program is dependent to a large degree on our partnership with the Guidance Counselors in our schools.
While we try to make the process as easy as possible, we count on your help to identify those students in their Sophomore years that have demonstrated leadership qualities and potential. Difference clubs have difference levels of resources available to sponsor students to the RYLA program. Many schools in the District have well established relationships with their local Rotary Club and we thank you for your continued partnership.
For those schools that have not participated in the program previously, please feel free to contact your local Rotary Club to explore opportunities to sponsor a future leader to attend RYLA.
