Here's what our past participants have had to say
Within 24 hours, I knew I was in for a fantastic week
"RYLA was such an eye opening experience. The friends gained and lessons learnt will stay with me forever"
"Reflecting on myself helped me identify the finer details about myself I had not noticed."
RYLA helped me enhance my trust in the strengths I have
RYLA forced me to break myself down, and look at who I am, and what things i am defining myself with. Often this being the lack of a clear passion or career. I always define myself with my failure, and the week helped me to look beyond that for the first time in years and actually see the things that make me who i am.
"It confirmed things that I thought about myself, which in turn reduced a lot of self doubt about my abilities and impact on the world"
Without RYLA I wouldn't have learned that it's okay to be myself
It was a safe space to share, and talk about the seminars, and hear others' opinions, and be exposed to ideas I probably wouldn't have though of myself. Also great to challenge my own thoughts and justify them to myself.
RYLA was able to show me how important different leadership styles are. Prior to the camp I pictured leadership as a single person leading a group of people, however it is clear to me now that there are multiple types of leadership which are all equally important.
