Yerington Rotary has long been an enthusiastic supporter of the RYLA program.  We have sponsored many local students over the last 15 years or so.  For the last few years we have sent at least 6 students each year.  Almost all of the attendees return telling us that RYLA was a life changing experience for them. 
Describing the current RYLA program is difficult.  All attendees are local and are selected and funded by their local Rotary Clubs in Rotary Districts 5180 and 5190 (this includes most of Nevada excluding Las Vegas and much of northern California excluding the Bay area).
RYLA is currently held at the Grizzly Creek Ranch near Portolla, CA (Grizzly Creek Ranch). The young men and women spend a week in a challenging program of discussions, inspirational addresses, leadership training and social activities designed to enhance personal development, leadership skills and good citizenship.
The attendees also have the opportunity to participate in a character building program provided by the Grizzly Creek Ranch Ropes Course, which focuses on leadership, effective communication, trust and cooperation. Utilizing adventure, personal commitments and shared insights, you will gain an increased sense of confidence in yourselves and in your team.
