National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.
The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.
NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.
Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.
If you are: Registered with BSA, 13 years of age*, Achieved at least 1st Class Rank*, Have Scoutmaster Recommendation, and Live by Scout Oath & Law, you are ready to take scouting to the next level at NYLT.
