National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. The training of the youth leadership of a unit is very important.
This course follows the national Boy Scouts of America syllabus for National Youth Leadership Training and participants will be both Boy Scouts and Venturers. The course will be co-ed. The course costs $185 per participant and is conducted in a long-term camp environment.
Youth in your unit who currently hold key leadership positions, or youth who you feel may hold one of these positions in the near future, would benefit tremendously and should plan to attend. To develop a participant’s full potential during NYLT, the youth must have attained a certain maturity level.
- Boy Scouts age 13 (by June 11, 2012) through 17, have earned the rank of First Class, have completed Troop Leadership Training (TLT) and have attended a week long summer camp before participating in this week-long course.
- Venturers who have completed Crew Officer Orientation and Venturing Leadership Skills Course. A long term camping experience is strongly encouraged.
