All staff members must submit to a background check as per Rotary policy for youth programs.

What it is to be a RYLA Counselor?

"Much of your ability to get people to do what they have to do is going to depend on what they perceive when they look at you and listen to you. They need to see someone who is stronger than they are, but human, too." -- Rudolph Giuliani

The job of RYLA Counselor is one of the most exhilarating and exhausting experiences you will ever have. For five days you will guide the growth and learning of 12 high school students as they explore leadership, service, and the power of teamwork. You will be pushed to continually expand your comfort zone while setting the best possible example you can for your group of RYLAtarians. 

There will be times that you will be worn out and frustrated, but there will be more that you will be inspired, elated, and in awe of what individuals can accomplish when they work in harmony with those around them. This is not simply a leadership experience to add to your resume...this is RYLA.
