National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
|What is NYLT?
||National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is a six-day outdoor experience in support of the Scoutmaster’s/Coach’s/Venturing Advisor's responsibility for the training of his/her youth leaders. The training uses the patrol method within the standard troop structure. Leadership changes daily to give every Scout a chance to serve as a crew leader or an assistant crew leader. Each Scout will write a vision statement in which he will plan the use of his newly acquired leadership skills in his/her home unit. This training was developed by the BSA National Council. NYLT is the most advanced leadership training offered to youth leaders at the council level.|
|Who may attend NYLT?
||Participants must be physically strong, at least First Class in rank, thirteen years of age, or a crew member by the start of the course, and serving or willing to serve in a leadership position within their unit. Each Scout must be able to participate in strenuous activity; have a working knowledge of camping, hiking and cooking in all weather conditions; and have the written approval of his Scoutmaster, Coach or Venturing Advisor.|
