National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils 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.
For many years, junior leader training (JLT) was an important part of the leadership training continuum of BSA local councils throughout America. In 2003 and 2004, a task force of leadership experts and hundreds of Scouts in pilot courses across the nation reviewed and tested every aspect of the new NYLT syllabus, which incorporates the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital and meaningful training for today's Scouts.
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 an exciting, action packed program designed to provide youth members of the Boy scouts of America with Leadership skills and experience they can use in their home Units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. NEW this year: opened to Venturing, male and female.
Through activities, presentations, challenging discussions, and audio-visual support, you will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give you the skills 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.
