Applications for RYLA 2020 are open and we encourage every club to find an amazing young person with leadership potential within your community to participate in the programme.

All the information you need is on the website here: www.ryla9940.co.nz

The early bird rate closes on 20th November. This means we need the application in, you will have interviewed the candidate and submitted the endorsement of their application by 20th November. So now's the time to get rolling with finding your RYLA candidate.If you are still on the lookout for a suitable candidate, here's a few ideas of where to find people aged 18 - 24 with leadership potential:

  • Contact your local High School and find out who the head boy and head girl were from a year or two back
  • Contact your local tertiary education provider and ask them for suggestions or to promote RYLA to students.
  • Contact the person you sponsored onto RYLA a few years ago, and ask them to nominate one or two people you could speak to.
  • Contact local employers, and ask which young employee they would like to invest in. Chances are, the employer would pay too. Corporates will find RYLA to be great value for a 5 day residential leadership course.
  • Talk to the President of the local rugby, netball or cricket club, or any other sports club, and ask which of their young members has leadership potential and would be worthy of nomination.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Paul Newsom (District Chair) and The RYLA 2020 leadership team.
