Andrew Jackson Council is pleased to offer National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) in the spring of 2019.  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 weekend 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 and 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 by March 1, 2019 and obtained the rank of First Class (Boy Scout only).
  • Recommended by your Scoutmaster, Crew Advisor, or Skipper
  • Currently serving or likely to serve in a unit-level position of responsibility
  • Full knowledge of basic cooking and knots/lashings
  • Willingness to abide by the Scout Oath and Law
  • Must attend the full week of training to receive a certificate of completion
  • Please, carefully consider the Scouts, Venturing Scout, or Sea Scouts 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.
