2022 Susquehanna & Juniata Valley Councils NYLT
The National Youth Leadership Training Program (NYLT) is Scouts BSA's premiere youth leadership development course. It is an intensive, fun, hand-on, and challenging program that combines outdoor adventure and classroom instruction to provide youth with experiences and tools for becoming great leaders.
NYLT focuses on what a leader must BE, what a leader must KNOW, and what a leader must DO. Participants develop skills such as communication, problem solving, presentation making, team development, working with adult leaders and youth in administrative areas, and ethical decision-making.
As part of the NYLT course, participants are formed into patrols that work and camp together. Under the guidance of highly skilled youth staff, participants take part in indoor and outdoor challenges to develop and demonstrate their growing abilities. Activities include geocaching, pioneering, role-playing, games, team competitions , overnight backpacking, and camping.
This amazing training is only available to members of Scouts BSA who are over age 13 and are First Class rank or above. They are highly encouraged to attend Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops. NYLT is also a great training for members of Venturing Crews.
