WHAT IS NYLT? National Youth Leader Training is a seven day outdoor training conference for youth leaders in Troop and Crew Units. It supports the Scoutmaster’s and Crew Advisor’s responsibility for training youth leaders. NYLT is conducted by the Council Training Committee using a syllabus that was developed by the Boy Scouts of America.
WHAT ARE THE COURSE GOALS?
Leadership requires vision, goals and planning. Through presentations and positive experiences in goal setting, planning and problem solving, participants learn how to set a clear course toward realizing their team and individual visions, and then to put themselves in the center of those pictures of future success.
WHO MAY ATTEND?
Participants must be 13 years old by June 11, 2017, be First Class rank or higher in their Troop or be an active member of a Crew, serve in a leadership position or demonstrate leadership abilities, and have long term camping experience. Since the NYLT will take place in a camp setting, the Scouts should have skills in camping, hiking, and cooking.
