National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
NYLT is a focused, high-energy outdoor experience for Scout BSA Troop/Venturing Crew youth leaders. Participants experience of an ideal Troop, experiencing team challenges to understanding their own "Quest for the Meaning of Leadership." Some leadership skill objectives include:
- Developing team visions
- Goal setting with SMART goals.
- Project planning – 4W’s
- Communication - MesSeR
- Leading EDGE methods
- Conflict Management – EAR
All offered in a fun outdoor environment within a program infused with the Scouting Spirit. Many colleges, universities and academies have recognized NYLT as a premier leadership program.
During the five course developments and setup you will be challenged and you will learn to do things you didn't think were possible before you completed the NYLT course. You will learn what it takes to organize the NYLT course and to give presentations to patrol size groups and larger groups as Troop Guide, or you could be involved in the logistics side of the course as one of the Quartermaster team. Most Scouts who participate as a staff member once, continue to participate for the rest of their Scouting careers. Click here for the staff schedule.
