National Youth Leadership Training
NYLT is an exciting, action packed program designed to provide youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home Troops and Venturing Crews. The leadership skills taught can be used in any other situation demanding leadership of “self” and “others.” This process begins with a “vision” of what success will look like in the future.
Scouting recognizes that Scoutmasters and Advisors have the primary responsibility for training their youth leaders. The purpose of NYLT is not to assume that role, but rather to support it. NYLT features instruction in skills that can be used at home, at school, on the job, and, in particular, at the Scout unit level. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, along with audio-visual support, NYLT participants will work hard and play hard together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.
