NYLT (National Youth Leadership Training)

Overview: The Shenandoah Area Council is pleased to offer National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) in the summer of 2018. National Youth Leadership Training will bring new skills and greater enthusiasm to your youth leadership.  Scouting recognizes that Unit Leaders have the primary responsibility for training their youth leaders. The purpose of NYLT is not to assume that role, but rather to support it. This week-long course features instruction in skills that can be used at home, at school, on the job, and, in particular, at the Scout unit level. Through activities, events, games, and adventures, NYLT participants will work hard and play hard together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.


Course Goals:


  • Give participants the confidence and knowledge to conduct the unit program
  • Provide participants with a clear understanding of team and personal development and how those elements relate 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 Oath and Law
  • Give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other units
  • Have fun and experience Scouting at its best
