The Missouri RYLA Academy is a 4-day, 3-night training program for high school sophomores and juniors who exhibit a desire for community service.  Developed by some of Missouri's top professional educators, the curriculum is designed to identify and enhance the qualities of Servant Leadership for each participant, train them on how to successfully implement a service project, and inspire them to live a lifetime of "Service Above Self."  In addition, participants are introduced to all the youth programs and values Rotary has to offer. 


Your local Rotary club is looking for viable candidates to potentially sponsor participants to attend one of two of the following academy sessions summer 2019 at William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri:

Session 1:  Sunday, June 23th--Wednesday 26th 2019

Session 2:  Sunday, July 7th—Wednesday 10th, 2019


This is a terrific chance for you and Rotarians to work together to recognize students who are service-minded, serving in your school, community and other avenues of their lives.   Your positive influence of getting applications into the hands of the best potential candidates cannot be understated.  Please note that each Rotary club has their own  sponsorship guidelines and selection process.
