NYLT 2020

Course overview

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, must KNOW, and must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. Kodiak is not required for participation in NYLT or NAYLE.

NYLT models a month in the life of a unit. It represents an activity cycle in the life of a typical Scouting unit. The first three full days of the course represent the planning stages, complete with leadership council meetings, unit meetings and planning for a larger event.

Participants use the full range of BSA resources for planning and conducting meetings that are interesting, lively, and relevant; a skill participants can incorporate with great effect when they return to their home units.

NYLT participants put their preparations to the test with an NYLT Outpost Camp. This experience symbolizes the big event that culminates a typical unit’s activity cycle program.

During an NYLT course, participants find themselves going through the four stages of team development — Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing -- that all groups experience when brought together for a single, unified purpose.

Their challenges heighten the team development process, enabling them to use their awareness to construct a highly effective team that can reach its full potential. Along the way they also get to enjoy Scouting fellowship and fun.

Participants discover that leading themselves and others requires vision. Each team will develop a vision for the course, and each individual will prepare their own vision. A constant refrain of NYLT is “If you can see it, you can be it.”

Through presentations and positive experiences in goal-setting, planning, and problem-solving, participants learn how to set a clear course toward realizing their team and individual visions; and then how to put themselves in the center of those pictures of future success.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Give participants the confidence and knowledge to conduct their own BSA program.
  • Provide participants with a clear understanding of team and personal devining.
  • Have a unit leader recommendation.

 

Age & Registration Requirements:

  • Must be a registered member of a Scouting unit.
  • Must have a current BSA Health and Medical Record form parts A, B, and C.
