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.
