Your next steps to help make RYLA District 7070 a success:

If your club has an interested candidate, please direct them to our application form (new one TBD). The application for participants is due on TBD in 2020.  


If your club is sponsoring or nominating a candidate, we'd love to connect with you further! A key benefit of providing monetary sponsorship for a participant is receiving a Presidential Citation check mark for your cub.  Your Rotary Club can further help by making a nomination for a participant (or multiple nominations) and by partaking in the 2020 RYLA Program as a speaker, facilitator, guest or observer.  Your club’s contribution gets our participants one step closer to the Rotary family, further empowering the leaders of today in District 7070. If your Club sponsors a Rotaract Club - coordinate with them re the search for potential applicants.  Overall, there's plenty of room to help!


Feel free to contact contact Neil Phillips at or Weiting Xu at  to enquire about how you or your club can help.
