National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed by the Boy Scouts of America for councils to use in providing youth members with leadership skills and a training experience they can use in their home units. Many graduates of the course find that the skills they learned at NYLT have assisted them in other life situations demanding leadership of self and others.
NYLT is a six-day course offered over two weekends that centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he or she must KNOW, and what he or she must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the conference as the patrols go on a Quest for the Meaning of Servant Leadership.
