Silver Moccasin / National Youth Leader Training
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is six days of an exciting, action-packed program, designed to provide youth with leadership skills and experience. NYLT focuses on what a leader must BE, KNOW, and DO. This is then applied with a clear focus on HOW TO. These skills come alive as the participants go on a "Quest for the Meaning of Leadership."
Youth are taught in a team setting, immediately applying their new knowledge in a fun, safe environment. Concepts and processes are taught then built upon with the use of memory aids. This helps participants to understand and apply the leadership skills immediately.
NYLT is the best of modern leadership theory, combined with the traditional values of scouting. A wide range of activities, work , games, adventures, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support will challenge NYLT participants to be engaged in leadership training that gives them the skills and the confidence they need to be leaders.
