National Youth Leadership Training

April 29 – May 1 & May 20 - 22, 2022 
This Course is open to Scouts BSA, Explorers, Sea Scouts & Venturers 

What is NYLT? The National Youth Leadership Training Course is a six-day outdoor experience for youth leaders in support of the Unit Leader’s responsibility for training the Unit’s youth leaders. It is conducted by the Tuscarora Council’s Training Committee using a syllabus published by the Boy Scouts of America. Scouting recognizes that Unit Leaders have the responsibility of training their own youth leaders. The purpose of the National Youth Leadership Training Course is not to assume the Unit Leader’s role, but to support it. This course is very similar to the Wood Badge training for adults. 
 
Purpose: The training of youth leaders in the Unit is important in helping individual Scouts, Venturers, and their Units grow. The Boy Scouts of America has developed a six-day training experience, the National Youth Leadership Training Course (NYLT) that has proven valuable in the training of youth leaders. The course will stress the skills of leadership that will make youth leaders more effective in their Unit leadership positions. The skills taught will build upon and reinforce the Unit Leader’s leadership development of the youth and directly benefit the Unit’s program. 
 
More importantly, the Scout or Venturer will be exposed to living skills that will allow him to become a successful leader in any organization. This course will provide the youth with the tools needed to develop to his or her full leadership potential. 
 
Qualifications: Any Scout who participates in the course must be at least a First Class Scout and 13 years old (but not yet 18), and a Scout that the Unit Leader feels is mature and currently filling a Unit leadership position or likely to assume a leadership position in the near future. The Scout may only attend on the Unit Leader’s recommendation. It is important that the Scout have camping, cooking, and hiking skills. There is no rank requirement for Explorers, Sea Scouts or Venturers – but a recommendation is required.
