RYLA Students 2013

The 2014 District 1060 Rotary Youth Leadership Award programme will be held at the prestigious Warwickshire College in Moreton Morrell near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire between 13th and 18th July.

The photo shows the new District 1060 RYLA is 'Leading the Way' with 7 nations represented on the steps at Morton Hall where the the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards are based around a WingChun Martial Arts experience, concentrating on self-motivation, mentoring, leadership, competition, sport and cultural activities which has proved very popular with students

The Warwickshire College with its 244 hectare estate is located at the village of Moreton Morrell, 8 miles equidistant from Leamington Spa, Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon, in beautiful rural countryside. Moreton Hall is situated in the grounds and was built in the early part of this century by Charles T. Garland, an American whose interests lay in horses, real tennis and trees and although recently gutted by fire, it is now in the course of restoration

The new format will allow Rotary Clubs who have contacts with overseas Rotary Clubs to offer the invitations direct. Rotary Clubs inviting students will provide hosting for 5 days prior to and 5 days following the RYLA event

These changes will hopefully enhance and foster International relations between Rotary Clubs in other countries in line with the 4th aspect of Rotary "The Advancement of International Understanding Goodwill and Peace". Support for twinning and encourage clubs to find students to take part in the Rotary Camps and Tours programmes or just a short term Youth Exchange. The RYLA Committee will offer help and advice wherever needed

The new RYLA programme is run by a team of Rotarians who have many years of experience with Rotary Youth programmes, especially RYLA and you may contact any of them at any time for help or advice.
