2020 NYLT

                                   Registration opens on December 1, 2019

NYLT is the most advanced youth leadership training program. It is six days packed with fun and learning with the goal of building leadership skills that can be put to immediate use by our youth in their home units, school and used in the daily lives.

Based on a course outline supplied by the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America and delivered by an outstanding, youth-led staff, NYLT is designed to continue the leadership training started at the Unit level.  It is meant to support and enhance the guidance and mentoring of the Scoutmaster or Crew Advisor, while pointing young men and women toward a higher level of achievement in Scouting and in life.

NYLT integrates the best of modern business leadership concepts with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience.  It centers on the concepts of what a leader must BE, what a leader must KNOW, and what a leader must DO.

Many of the key course concepts in the course are represented as mnemonics, or easy-to-remember phrases. These include:[12]

  • Vision—Goals—Planning: Creating a positive future success
  • SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely
  • Planning and Problem-solving Tool: What, How, When, Who
  • SSC Assessment Tool: Start, Stop, Continue
  • Teaching EDGE: Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable
  • Stages of Team Development: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing
  • Leading EDGE: Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable
  • Conflict Resolution Tool: EAR – Express, Address, Resolve
