Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) 
The Rotary Club of San Francisco started Camp Enterprise, a small leadership skills weekend camp for high school students, in 1985. Since then the program has grown substantially, and has been renamed Rotary Youth Leadership Awards or RYLA, the name Rotary Clubs around the world use for this kind of project.
 
Hundreds of high school sophomores and juniors now attend our annual RYLA camp, which is operated by Rotary District 5150. The Rotary Club of San Francisco remains the largest sponsor of this program in the District.
 
Youth Leadership Curriculum 
We are developing a leadership curriculum for high school students, which will roll out to high school students in San Francisco in the coming years — and, eventually, beyond.
