National Youth Leadership Training

Leadership is a key factor in the development of a Scout. One of the most valuable thins Scouting offers a boy is the opportunity to be a leader and to develop his leadership skills. The National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course provides an exceptional opportunity to do just that. 

NYLT is an intensive six day training experience for Senior Patrol Leaders, Assistant Senior Patrol Leaders, Patrol Leaders, Crew Leaders and other youth leaders as well as prospective Troop/Crew leaders. The course uses a systematic approach to teach contemporary leadership skills, with an emphasis on both theory and practical application in a Scouting context. For the Scout who desires to be a better and more effective leader, NYLT is an unparalleled opportunity.
