Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Program


The Rotary Club of Cranberry Township Sunrise will once again be providing a scholarship for multiple students to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Program. The Rotary has a great deal of respect and concern for the youth of our community, and RYLA looks to give public recognition to the many young people who are already rendering important services to the community and to also encourage and develop young leaders and potential leaders by providing them with a meaningful training experience.

Selected students, who will be seniors in high school in September of 2014, will attend the week-long conference at Westminster College beginning Sunday afternoon, June 8 and ending Friday evening, June 13, 2014. The RYLA schedule will be filled with stimulating lectures and discussions on leadership skills, youth-related concerns, public issues, community service activities, career guidance and recreation. The students will also be able to participate in social events in order to get to know one another and hopefully make some life-long friends. Typically, there is approximately 100 students from Western Pennsylvania that attend the event.

The Rotary Club of Cranberry Township Sunrise would like to send multiple students to the RYLA conference and is looking for RYLA nominations by March 1. Please contact Rich Inman at or Bobby Zahner at if you have a nomination.
