After RYLA

The RYLA committee have a couple of suggestions of how your club can keep in contact with the participants you have sponsored. This can be a mutually beneficial relationship for you and the participants.

The committee highly encourages every sponsoring Rotary Club to invite the participants they sponsored to a meeting to speak of their RYLA experience. Some clubs invite the participants before and after they attend the programme.

Participants can be invited to be on future RYLA Applicant Interview panels. This is a small commitment and a great way for them to give back to Rotary and help select appropriate candidates.

Many participants of RYLA are busy people and are most likely already involved in the community. For those that would like to contribute more you might like to involve them club projects or tell them about Rotaract. Wellington has an active club for more information see
