National Youth Leadership Training

Develop Leadership through National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)


National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the premier youth leadership training course for Scouts BSA and Venture youth leaders.  It provides the skills that youth leaders need to be successful in their Scouting roles and in life. Through the Scouting method, skills such as communicating, developing a team, applying leadership, and much more are learned and applied!

The National Youth Leadership Training course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

 The course will be held May 26 - May 31, 2019 at Falley Scout Reservation.


Requirements to Attend: Scouts BSA and Varsity Scouts - Must be at least 13 years old and first class and complete Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops. Venturers - Must be 13 or 14 and have completed the 8th grade and complete Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crew. It is recommended that Venturers have had at least one year of camping experience.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol team outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of mnemonics (memory aids), which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

The registration fee is $200. The registration deadline is May 18, 2019. The fee includes training materials, food, and recognition items. In addition, you will need to provide personal camping gear and uniforms. Details will be available online and emailed prior to course opening.

Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the course reaches capacity.
