What is NYLT?

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops/crews and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.  This course is the highest level of training offered to youth by a council.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he/she must KNOW, and what he/she must DO.  The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO.

The NYLT course is a six day course delivered over two weekends.  Instruction is conducted in a partol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment.
