National Youth Leadership Training - NYLT
Leadership is a key factor in the development of a Scout. One of the most valuable things Scouting offers a scout is the opportunity to be a leader and to develop their 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.
