NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING 2019/2020
Gulf Coast Council / Boy Scouts of America

 

COURSE INFORMATION

What is NYLT?

National Youth Leadership Training is a six-day outdoor experience for Boy Scout Troop/Venturing Crew youth leaders in support of the Scoutmaster’s Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) and Venturing Crew Advisor’s Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC) done throughout the Scouting year.

What is its purpose?

Scouting recognizes that Scoutmasters/Crew Advisors have the responsibility of training their Troop’s/Venturing youth leaders using ILST/ILSC. The purpose of the NYLT program is not to assume that role, but to support it. The objectives of the course are:

ο To give the participants the confidence and knowledge to run the troop/crew program.

ο To give participants a basic knowledge of Be-Know-Do leadership model and help relate these skills to their troop/crew roles and responsibilities.

ο To give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts/Venturers from other troops/crews.

ο To create an atmosphere where Scouts/Venturers will experience Scouting at its best.

ο To enhance the relationship between the participant and his Scoutmaster/Advisor.

ο To have fun.

Course Dates:  December 27th, 2019- January 1st, 2020 (You must attend the whole time)
