National Youth Leadership Training

2017 NYLT Course Date Announced

Weeklong format:

July 30 thru August 4, 2017 at Forest Lawn Scout Reservation, Lake Arrowhead

NYLT

The National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is a six day, leadership training experience for Boy Scout and Venturing youth leaders of the Greater Los Angeles Area Council. The course design and content has been developed by the National BSA Council and is offered by your local council as a supplement to the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops provided by the Scoutmasters or Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews provided by the Venture Crew Leadership.

The NYLT Course teaches the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. Content is delivered in a unit and group outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment.

The course schedule parallels the program month of a Troop and Crew. Three model unit meetings, a team leaders' council meeting in the round followed by daily TLC operating sessions, an instructional campfire, and unit operation using the patrol method show how to create a productive program.

2017 NYLT Course

Year 2017 NYLT course uses the published national syllabus. The course activities are carefully planned and build upon each experience; in other words everything is pre-programmed for the entire course.  For this reason, it is not possible to accept a Scout or Venturer who cannot arrive on the first day at the scheduled beginning time and remain for the entire course duration.

Weeklong Format:

July 30 thru August 4 at Forest Lawn Scout Reservation, Lake Arrowhead
