Save the date: The Rotary Seminar for Tomorrow's Leaders program will be May 12-14, 2023. We're excited to announce that we'll be back to in-person Seminar in 2023! Registration will open in January 2023.

What is the Rotary Seminar for Tomorrow's Leaders?

The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership program organized and facilitated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of youth, who are invited to participate based on their leadership potential and are sponsored by Rotary Clubs, participate in this amazing program. Rotary Clubs and the Rotary District cover all expenses for the participants. The format of the event varies from district to district, but commonly takes the form of a seminar, workshop, or camp where the participants learn, discuss, and practice leadership skills.
In District 6330, our RYLA program is known as the Rotary Seminar for Tomorrow's Leaders. It is a weekend seminar usually held at Western University in London, Ontario. Our seminar is devoted to enhancing and expanding the leadership skills and abilities of grade 10 and 11 students—the next generation of leaders in communities throughout the District! Students are provided with a range of new experiences, tools, and perspectives through icebreakers, group discussions, amazing guest speakers, and other interactive activities that engage and nurture their inner leader! 

 RYLA aims to:
  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth;
  • Provide an effective training experience for selected youth and potential leaders;
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth;
  • Recognize young people who are rendering service to their communities.
  • Most RYLA programs cover the following topics:
    • Fundamentals of leadership
    • Ethics of positive leadership
    • Importance of communication skills in effective leadership
    • Problem-solving and conflict management
    • Rotary's purpose and service to the community
    • Building self-confidence and self-esteem
    • Elements of community and global citizenship
Each year, students create lifelong friends from across District 6330. They are introduced to other Rotary youth programs, including Interact, Rotaract, and Rotary Youth Exchange, and learn how they can stay involved with Rotary in their community after the seminar—they expand their horizons both inside and outside the organization!

2023 Program

The date for the 2023 program will be Friday, May 12 to Sunday, May 14, 2023. We are excited to return to an in-person Seminar in 2023! We are still in the early planning stages so we have not yet confirmed the cost, but we anticipate it will be ~CAD$450 /USD$350 per participant. Registration will be open in January 2023.
