NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING (NYLT) is an intensive week-long youth directed leadership training experience. The training is conducted by highly qualified youth staff under the supervision of adult advisers using the BSA National Youth Leadership Training Course syllabus. The course models a month in the life of a troop (three meetings leading up to a troop camping experience). NYLT uses the patrol method and presents model Patrol Leader Council meetings. NYLT Patrols are challenged to present at the end of the week their "Quest for the Meaning of Leadership." This challenge is designed to have them experience the four stages of team development and will help patrols and participants internalize the leadership skills and concepts being presented. Throughout the course, the staff will be modeling the concepts and skills that are the core content of the course. The focus of each session is not only knowledge but giving the youth a "Toolbox of Skills" that equips them with the how. Click to print a NYLT Brochure or to view an NYLT POWER POINT PRESENTATION.
