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.
