National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program that provides youth members with leadership skills and experience you can use in your home troop and other situations demanding leadership of yourself and others.
The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what they must KNOW, and what they must DO. The key elements are taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. Your skills come alive during the week as your patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.
NYLT is a six-day course. 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 the leadership skills much faster.
