This year, the Garden State Council held 2 National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) Courses. Like Wood Badge training for adults, NYLT teaches youth leadership skills to help them lead the Scouts in their units. The results are stronger units with growing programs that fulfill the mission & vision of the Boy Scouts of America.
The skills presented in these courses go far beyond the Pack, Troop, & Crew meetings. Recently, NYLT staff alumni Pete posted a photo online of his whiteboard, showing references of the stages of team development and EDGE.
