2014 National Youth Leadership Training


August 4-9, 2014 at Rancho Alegre

National Youth Leadership Training is the Los Padres Council's advanced leadership training course for Scouting's youth leaders. NYLT is a course staffed and led primarily by Boy Scouts. The course material can be applied to all aspects of a Scout's life, not just his Scouting leadership. Through activities, events, games, and adventures, participants will work hard and play hard as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.

The Objectives of the NYLT Course are:
  • Give participants the confidence and knowledge to conduct the Troop 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.
  • Experience an environment of Scouting fellowship and fun.
  • Give Boy Scouts the opportunity to work with Scouts from other troops.
Prerequisites for attending NYLT are:
  • Be at least 13 years of age, but not yet 18 by August 5, 2013, and be at least First Class rank.
  • Completion of Troop Leadership Training (TLT) is highly desirable.
  • Be at the pre-course Orientation Meeting (location and date to be announced).
  • Be recommended for participation by your Unit Leader, and have permission from your parents.

If you can SEE it, You can BE it!
