National Youth Leadership
Training is an exciting, action-packed
program designed for
councils to provide youth members with
leadership skills and experience they can
use in their home troops and in
other situations demanding leadership of
self and others.
The NYLT course centers
around the concepts of what a leader must
BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO.
The key elements are then taught with a
clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive
during the week as the patrol goes on a
Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.
NYLT is a week long course. Content is delivered in a troop and
patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on
immediate application of learning in a fun
environment. Interconnecting concepts and
work processes are introduced early, built
upon, and aided by the use of memory aids,
which allows participants to understand and
employ the leadership skills much faster.
Built on the legacy of
past JLT successes, the new NYLT integrates
the best of modern leadership theory with
the traditional strengths of the Scouting
experience. Through activities,
presentations, challenges, discussions, and
audio-visual support, NYLT participants will
be engaged in a unified approach to
leadership that will give them the skill and
confidence to lead well. Through a wide
range of activities, games, and adventures,
participants will work and play together as
they put into action the best Scouting has
The NYLT training
syllabus includes: Vision-Goal Planning;

The course is open to
Scouts or Venturers who are between 13 and 17 years of
age and at least First Class or a Venturer.
