何謂扶輪青少年領袖營


扶輪青少年領袖營簡介

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards

R.Y.L.A.


在美國、澳洲、加拿大、印度、法國、阿根庭、韓國及許多其他國家裡,每年夏季都有成千的年輕人被挑選出來參加扶輪社所主辦的領袖營或研習會。在一種戶外不拘形式的環境中,五十到七十五位優秀的年青男士及女士們,以一週的時間接受一些極富挑戰性的課程,包括討論、激勵性演講、領導人訓練及社會活動節目,以提高個人的發展,領導人技巧及好公民素質。此活動的正式名稱是「扶輪青少年領袖獎活動」(RYLA),然而有時也會因時地的關係而稱為「皇家訓練營」,「企業訓練營」,「青少年領導人研習會」,「青少年會議」或其他名稱舉行。Each summer thousands of young people are selected to attend Rotary-sponsored leadership camps or seminars in the United States, Australia, Canada, India, France, Argentina, Korea and numerous other countries. In an informal out-of-doors atmosphere, 50 to 75 outstanding young men and/or women spend a week in a challenging program of discussions, inspirational addresses, leadership training and social activities designed to enhance personal development, leadership skills and good citizenship. The official name of this activity is the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program (RYLA), although the event is occasionally referred to as Camp Royal, Camp Enterprise, Youth Leaders Seminars, Youth Conferences or other terms.

「扶輪青少年領袖獎活動」,是1959年在澳洲開始的,當時是澳洲昆士蘭州所有青年被選出來謁見女王伊利莎白二世的年輕堂妹亞歷山德拉公主。昆士蘭州首府布利斯賓市的扶輪社員接待這些參加的青年們,因而對於這些青年領導人的優秀素養印象極為深刻,於是決定每集合青少年領導人,為期一週以舉辦社會、文化及教育方面的活動。「扶輪青少年領袖獎活動」,逐漸成長並擴大到澳洲及紐西蘭所有扶輪地區。1971年,國際扶輪理事會通過正式採用「扶輪青少年領袖獎活動」為國際扶輪一個公式活動節目。The RYLA program began in Australia in 1959, when young people throughout the state of Queensland were selected to meet with Princess Alexandra, the young cousin of Queen Elizabeth II. The Rotarians of Brisbane, who hosted the participants, were impressed with the quality of the young leaders. It was decided to bring youth leaders together each year for a week of social, cultural and educational activities. The RYLA program gradually grew throughout all the Rotary districts of Australia and New Zealand. In 1971, the RI Board of Directors adopted RYLA as an official program of Rotary International.
