The ILST course aims to teach Scouts in leadership positions about their roles and how to reach success in that role most effectively. It is intended to help youth leadership within Troops understand their responsibilities and equip them with the organizational and leadership skills needed to fulfill them.

ILST is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a prerequisite to National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). This course provides tools and resources to better conduct a true youth-led Troop and emphasizes the power of the patrol method.

Registration must be completed online.
