Vision of Youth Leadership


Scouting recognizes that Scoutmasters have the primary responsibility for training their youth leaders. The purpose of NYLT is not to assume that role, but rather to support it. NYLT features instruction in skills that can be used at home, at school, on the job, and, in particular, at the Scout unit level. Through activities, events, games, and adventures, NYLT participants will work hard and play hard together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.

Course Vision

The National Youth Leadership Training course will provide each scout participant an experience where he can learn to Be, Know and Do the highest ideals of scouting leadership.

Everything is keyed toward meeting our training objectives:

Give participants the confidence and knowledge to conduct the troop program.
Provide participants with a clear understanding of team and personal development and how those elements relate to being a leader.
Guide the participants through the stages of team development.
Create an environment of Scouting fellowship and fun guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
Give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other troops.
Have fun and experience Scouting at its best.

This change aligns what youth are learning and using with what adults learn and use from Wood Badge for the 21st Century.
