What is NYLT?
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an intense, but fun, 6-day outdoor learning experience conducted over two weekends. It is designed to provide all youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with leadership skills, confidence and experience that they can use in their home troops and crews. NYLT will support the Scoutmaster, Coach or Crew Advisor's role in training youth leaders and will enhance leadership skills in a Scout or Venturer who already possesses the foundation through attendance at a troop, district, or crew-led leadership training course.
The course is conducted under the auspices of the Baltimore Area Council Training Committee using the latest national BSA-developed National Youth Leadership Training syllabus and parallels the 21st Century Wood Badge training for adults.
What is the purpose?
Through activities, events, games and adventures, NYLT participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting has to offer. They will practice and experience leadership skills first hand!
