RYLA Facilitators

Kiera North

Participating in RYLA 2015 was by far one of the most incredible experiences of my life and expanded both my personal and professional objectives. RYLA’s focus on leadership is multidimensional, encapsulating aspects such as self-growth and realisation that have had such an influence on every aspect of my life. What this program offers is truly amazing and unlike no other, I just couldn’t stay away from something that gave me so much! This is an incredible opportunity for all participants embrace every moment!

RYLA is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to develop a strong foundational platform for future personal and professional development. I can definitely say that, the skills I learnt on RYLA continue to assist me to this very day, as I journey through a dynamic world. It is a special opportunity that should not be missed by any individual and I look forward to ensuring others enjoy RYLA as much as I did!

RYLA gives you the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and develop new skills which will help you in your personal and professional life. You’ll meet some amazing people and have an all-round great experience. My RYLA experience in 2016 was incredible and I look forward to meeting you and ensuring you have a great experience too!

I am involved with RYLA due to the amazing experience I had as a RYLArian in 2015. Still being involved in RYLA is not only fun, but it also gives me the chance to give back to something that has given me so much, by allowing me to help other people grow and develop through this program.

Being a RYLA participant truly helped me learn about my passions and personal strengths. I applied to be a facilitator to give back to the wonderful program that is RYLA and develop myself as a leader, team member and mentor. My experience at RYLA 2016 was so much fun and I'm here to help you make the most of every moment!

I was truly inspired by my week on RYLA in 2017, it opened so many doors and offered me so many valuable lessons which I apply in my everyday life. When the opportunity came up I knew that I wanted to give something back to the RYLA community because of its unique nature!
