2023 NYLT

Event Details

THE COURSE: National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed six-day council-level program designed to provide Scouts in troops, crews, and ships with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and other situations demanding leadership of self and others. The course is designed for Scouts BSA members who are at least 13 years old, and for Venturers or Sea Scouts who are at least 13 years old and have completed eighth grade.

WHAT YOU WILL DO AND LEARN AT NYLT: NYLT: is filled with activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and camping in a team and model unit environment. Participants learn and practice skills that are valuable at home, church, school, work, and the Scouting unit. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon,and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ leadership skills much faster. These skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning ofLeadership.

THE RESULTS: First of all, you will have a lot of fun at NYLT! Activities are built around the idea that Scouting is “a game with a purpose.” You will meet new friends that share your interest in Scouting and in becoming a stronger leader.
