National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program developed by the BSA and is presented by volunteer NNJC youth and adult staff to provide youth members with leadership skills, methods and experiences to become better leaders in their unit.
The course centers around the concept of what a leader must be, what they must know, and what they must do – with a clear focus on how to accomplish all this. The skills are delivered in a socially distant troop and patrol setting at Camp Lewis. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.
The skills presented at NYLT are like those given in management training at major corporations. Scouts who take NYLT will learn valuable skills that will serve them well in college, trade careers, military service, or future activities as young adults.
