National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)


The Shenandoah Area Council is pleased to offer National Youth Leadership Training Conference (NYLT) in the summer of 2014.  NYLT 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 & Law.
  • Give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other units.
  • Have fun and experience Scouting at its best.

Qualifications & Expectations:

  • Be at least 13 years old and obtained the rank of First Class (This applies for Boy Scouts only)
  • Recommended by your Scoutmaster or Crew Advisor
  • Currently serving or likely to serve in a unit-level position of responsibility
  • Minimum of 2 previous long-term camping experiences.
  • Full knowledge of basic cooking and knots/lashing.
  • Willingness to abide by the Scout Oath & Law.
  • Must attend the full week of training to receive a certificate of completion.

Please carefully consider the the Scouts/Venturers you send to NYLT - the amount of benefit a young person will get from this training is directly proportional to their level of maturity, attitude and focus.

The fee includes 2 course t-shirts. 

We will follow up all registrations with an information packet by email.
