Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, more commonly referred to as RYLA, is a unique youth program sponsored by Rotary International. RYLA offers and exciting combination of energetic team leaders, motivational speakers, self-development concepts, in total, 150 hours of interaction and fun. Awardees can take a week away from their usual workplace or study, given a real opportunity to step out of their ‘comfort zone’ and as Bruce Sullivan quotes “have the energy of a 4 year old, almost every day!”
Bruce has been the keynote speaker for RYLA since 1990, never missing the opportunity to speak gratuitously in the first daytime session of the six and a half day seminar thus setting the precedent for the following days.
Fifteen years attending RYLA as a guest speaker is an outstanding commitment to the youth in our Rotary District. He does this because he loves it and he’s good at it. We ask him back year after year because he is brilliant at it and we love him.
Bruce, thank you for your commitment to the RYLA, the Team, and the Awardees.
