JUN - NYLT 2016 Summer Course - Lead the Way!

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide all 13- to 20-year-old members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. 

For many years, junior leader training (JLT) was an important part of the leadership training continuum of BSA local councils throughout America. In 2003 and 2004, a task force of leadership experts and hundreds of Scouts in pilot courses across the nation reviewed and tested every aspect of this NYLT course, which incorporates the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital, and meaningful training for today's youth. 

In 2010, the program was updated to include Venturers in addition to Boy Scouts. 

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

The BSA Vision Statement: The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Scout Law. 

If you are striving to develop strong leaders in your unit, please consider recommending your scouts to NYLT.

In order to attend an NYLT course, a youth must have the following qualifications by the beginning of the course:

1. Must be a registered member of a Scouting unit. 

2. Must have a current BSA Health and Medical Record form parts A, B, and C.

3. Boy Scouts and Varsity Scouts must be 13 years of age and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program registration. They must be a First Class Scout and have completed Introduction to Leader Skills for Troops. 

4. Venturers and Sea Scouts (male and female) must be at least 14, or 13 and have completed the eighth grade, and fall withing the maximum age allowance for their program. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews or Ships. It is recommended that they have had at least one year of camping experience. While NYLT is not an outdoor skills course, it is important that each participant have basic camping and outdoor cooking experience.
