     What is NYLT? National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed, six-day program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. The course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he/she must KNOW, and what he/she must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO.

     Content is delivered in an 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. Through activities, games, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer. Participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skill and confidence to lead well.

     The training objectives are:
           To give participants a basic knowledge of the skills of leadership,
           To give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences
           To give participants the confidence and knowledge to run the unit program,
