NYLT 2019


February 16th -18th  &  March 8th - 10th, 2019

NYLT is a leadership course developed by the Boy Scouts of America to enable Scouting youth to lead their units. NYLT uses the methods of Scouting to teach leadership skills. A week is spent in an environment that exemplifies the “best” that Scouting can be and is the vision that Baden-Powell intended. Youth will experience a “Boy led Troop” as the program is run by youth.

The NYLT course simulates a month in the life of a Troop in a six-day course (two weekends in the winter and 1 week in the summer). It reinforces and expands upon Be-Know-Do leadership. Scouts learn a number of leadership skills and concepts. The Scouts learn about the stages of team development and how to match the most appropriate leadership style with the developmental stage of the individual or team. The course has many challenges for the youths, including its culmination where they undergo a quest for the meaning of leadership.

The NYLT course has Eight Key Elements

  • A month in the Life of a Troop

  • Leadership requires Vision, Goals, and Plans
