The National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) Conference is like Wood Badge for youth. NYLT is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops, teams, crews, personal lives, and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.
NYLT is for Boy Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, and Explorers.
All courses are at Camp Sheppard.
Modern leadership theory is delivered in a team setting (the term team may be considered synonymous with patrol in a Troop model) with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment.
The course is an exciting combination of classroom and fun outdoor activities providing a challenging and rewarding learning experience.
Participants cook meals and work in their teams throughout the course. Teams are composed of diverse participants in order to promote individuals making new friends and learning about others.
