ClubPack and Support Materials
Your Step-by-Step Guide to RYLA!
The ClubPack and Support Materials will help guide your club to a successful RYLA experience. Literally hundreds, if not thousands, of man-hours have been spent developing these materials. They will be invaluable to your Club RYLA Chair and any others who want to understand a Rotary Club's part in the RYLA program.
