National Youth Leadership Training NYLT

Event Details

National Youth Leadership Training

The Daniel Webster council has been offering the NYLT program to its youth leaders since the summer of 2000, to meet the needs of our local and regional Scouting units. Come accelerate your leadership with us!

What is National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)?

NYLT is a week-long outdoor leadership training program for youth leaders developed by the Boy Scouts of America and conducted by Daniel Webster Council and other councils around the country. A highly trained youth staff under the supervision of adult advisors set the example in modeling the core learning and leadership messages of the National BSA NYLT syllabus.

The course focuses on teaching advanced leadership skills through the patrol or crew method. The participants will be challenged to accomplish activities and projects using the leadership skills taught in the course. Participants will experience the simulation of a month in the life of a Scouting unit, complete with meetings, activities, and planning for the big monthly outing.

What are the course objectives?

To create an enthusiastic and fun situation where participants will experience “Scouting at its best”;

To give participants the confidence and knowledge to run their unit program and an opportunity to explore new program ideas with their peers;

To improve the health of scouting units and to create a youth training pool to assist in District level training events.

Participants will gain the most from the course if they have had a successful experience as an elected leader.

Venturers or Explorers who are Crew or Post members looking to step into a leadership role for their Crew, Post, or school in the upcoming year should definitely attend.

OA Chapters are encouraged to send teams of their upcoming leaders to the course.
