What Is NYLT?

The National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an intense, challenging 5-day outdoor training course designed to develop Unit Youth Leaders, ages 13 to 18 years old.  This experience provides a fun, exciting, action, and challenging concept of leadership.  Participants are involved in presentations, patrol competition, games, and adventures as they work and play together to put into action the best that Scouting has to offer.


What Can I Expect?

The purpose of this leadership training is to focus on What a Leader must BE, What a Leader must KNOW, and What a Leader must DO.  The week models a month in the life of an "ideal" Unit.  The course will emphasize immediate application of learning in a fun environment.  Each participant will be provided a toolbox of leadership skills consisting of key course concepts.  This leadership experience operates according to the Scout Oath and the Scout Law with everyone having FUN.
