Each year the Rotary Club of Toowoomba sponsors 1-2 delegates to the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program. The week-long RYLA program fosters personal growth and leadership in young people aged 18-24 years.

In July 2015 Dimity Lynch and Elana Wilson will be our Club candidates to RYLA at Camp Duckadang. 

Jess Pomare and Emma Wilson were sponsored by our Club to attend RYLA from 5-12 July July 2014.

Our Club's RYLA Candidate for 2013 was Jessie Russell. Jessie was Guest Speaker at our Club Meeting on 2 September 2013. Jesse is 1st Assistant Manager at McDonalds, Gatton, and was nominated by PP Shane Doyle.

Jessie spoke candidly of his RYLA experience which included deadlines, physical challenges, educational programs and guest presenters. He has returned from RYLA with a new attitude to work, life and family, and new goals. Jessie is another outstanding success story from RYLA.
