NYLT is the Twin Rivers Council's premier leadership development course for experienced Scouts and Venturers who are nominated by their unit leader for their potential as a future leader.
National Youth Leader Training (NYLT) is a co-ed leadership-training program developed by the Boy Scouts of America. The seven-day course schedule parallels the program month of a troop, team, or crew, Three model troop meetings, a patrol leaders’ council meeting in the round followed by daily PLC operating sessions, an instructional campfire, and troop operation using the patrol method are coupled with Explanation, Demonstration, and Guided practice to create an Enabled, productive troop program. Throughout the week, a staff of volunteer Scouts and Scouters from the Twin Rivers Council delivers the program in an adult-led, youth run troop model. NYLT is not "just another summer camp", but an intense, challenging, leadership experience.
The purpose of NYLT is to support the Scout unit's program. The course will give participants the confidence and knowledge to run the unit program .
