RYLA logo

The Rotary organisation is about building a better society both locally and internationally, The Rotary Club of Abingdon Vesper actively promotes that principle.

One way that it can help young adults is to promote The Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA), which is Rotary’s way of giving young adults at the start of their careers the opportunity to develop qualities of leadership, team working, initiative, communication and problem solving. RYLA is a week long course that includes activities such as abseiling, navigation, canoeing, sailing, high ropes etc.

Who can take part?

Applications are particularly welcome from those who may not get the opportunity to attend a course such as this.
