RYLA is an excellent professional development opportunity for a young person in your workplace. A team of young professionals run the seminar to develop the leadership skills and personal potential of all participants.

The Golden Plains Shire has sent several young employees to RYLA. Rod Nicholls, CEO, states that “The benefits for council have been many. The significant increase in self-confidence, initiative, professionalism and motivation for each employee who has attended has been very evident to peers and management.”

“RYLA was an amazing week designed to boost young people’s leadership potential and self-confidence facilitated by an energetic and professional team of RYLA leaders. Through six days of education and activities, both physical and mental, the young participants slowly grew in confidence and learnt much about their own personal and professional development potential. I know that I personally came away from the week with a greater sense of self-confidence and a better insight into myself and my own capabilities. I would strongly recommend to any organisation thinking of sending young employees to this program that it is a fantastic initiative and a wise investment for the future.” Steven Quick, Golden Plains Works Engineer – RYLA Participant.
