RYLA is an international leadership program developed by Rotary International in 1971 and organized in our area by the late Truman Mills, a lifelong Rotarian.
The program is designed to demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth; provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders, encourage the leadership of youth by youth, and recognize publicly young people who are rendering service to their communities.
This year’s RYLA class includes students finishing their junior high school year, and representing all Clarion County High Schools who were chosen by their respective high school guidance counselors.
Clarion Rotary pays all of the RYLA fees for these students.
