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 (one each day for the first three days) all leading up to a big outdoor experience (an overnight outpost camp). The course uses the patrol method and presents model Patrol Leader Council meetings. Patrols are challenged to present by the end of the week their "Quest for the Meaning of Leadership." While this challenge is designed to have them go through the four stages of team development, it will help patrols and participants internalize the leadership skills and concepts being presented to them along the way. 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. To view an NYLT POWER POINT PRESENTATION click the underlined words
