2019 National Youth Leadership Training Rhodes France
Grow and improve your leadership skills while following the guidelines of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Scouts earning the National Youth Leadership Training shield are better prepared to interact with adult leaders and face the challenges and demands ahead.
It is recommended that they have had at least one year of camping experience. While NYLT is not an outdoor skills course, it is important that each participant have basic camping and outdoor cooking experience.
To attend NYLT, a Scout must be:
- A current registered member of the BSA
- First Class rank or higher and have completed introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops
- 13 years old
- A current or prospective youth leader approved by the Scoutmaster
**Venturers and Sea Scouts must meet all of the above but the First class rank requirement and fall within the maximum age allowance.**
**For 2019 only, an exception will be granted for girls to attend NYLT without first achieving the First Class Rank; they must meet age requirements and first attend Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST). **
