ABOUT: The NYLT course 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. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

Provide participants with a clear understanding of team and personal development and how those elements related to being a leader.
Guide the participants through the stages of team development.
Create an environment of Scouting fellowship and fun guided by the Scout / Venturing Oath and Scout Law.
Give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with youth from other troops.
Have fun and experience the “scouting” program at its best.
WHO MAY ATTEND:
The NYLT course is ideal training for all Unit leaders, Scouts and Venturers. In order to attend, you must have the following qualifications by the beginning of the course:
Boy Scouts and Varsity Scouts must be 13 years of age and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program registration.
Be a First Class Scout and have completed Troop Leadership Training (TLT).
Other youth participants must be at least 14 and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program. They must have completed Crew Officer Orientation, the Venturing Leadership Skills Course, or the new Crew Leadership Training.
Have a unit leader recommendation.
Unit leaders should not allow exceptions to age and rank requirements. Experience has shown that youth younger than 13 often lack the physical and emotional maturity to benefit fully from the NYLT experience. Select and invite youth from your unit who you as a leader believe will gain the most from the course and will be the best servant leaders. Make sure that the youth whose names you submit are willing and eager participants. They will be best served by the NYLT experience.
