The Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is an intensive leadership experience sponsored by Rotary Clubs across Niagara. Each Club, including the Rotary Club of St. Catharines Lakeshore, sponsors one or more candidates aged 14-30 to attend the sessions, developing their skills as a leader while having fun and making connections. Participants learn to:
1. Build communication and problem-solving skills.
2. Discover strategies for becoming a dynamic leader in their school or community.
3. Learn from community leaders, inspirational speakers, and peer mentors.
4. Unlock their potential to turn motivation into action.
Visit for more information on RYLA. Thanks to revenues raised through our membership with the Delta Bingo Sponsors Association of St. Catharines and our partnership with Delta Bingo and Gaming we are able to fund one or more local St. Catharines residents for this outstanding program.
