National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience that they can use in their home troops and crews, as well as other situations demanding leadership of self and others.
The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he or she must KNOW, and what he or she must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO.
Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop/crew 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 activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, NYLT participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skill and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting has to offer.

NOTE: The course is currently full.

 By signing up you are not guaranteed a slot in the course but will be put a standby list and contacted if a slot becomes available.  Those on the standby list will be contacted in the order they applied.
