National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) - Summer or Fall Session

Posted on May 19 2021 - 11:26pm

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
https://www.crossroadsbsa.org/nylt/

NYLT training is a two weekend (Spring or Fall) or one full week (summer) training that prepares older scouts for roles in Troop Leadership.

Ideally, all scouts will have the opportunity to go through this course so they are all prepared to take on the higher leadership roles in the Troop such as Senior Patrol Leader, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, Senior Quartermaster, Quartermaster, Troop Guide, Den Cheif…  

Scouts must be 13 years old and First Class to participate. Scouts must also have served in the Troop as Patrol Leader or Assistant Patrol Leader AND taken the Introduction to Leadership Course (ILS) that the Scoutmaster leads at the beginning of their term.  Therefore, many scouts in Llamas, Phoenix, Fox, Vikings, Wolverines are eligible and encouraged to attend.

Three sessions of NYLT are offered each year: two weekends in the spring, one full week in the summer, and two weekends in the fall.

2021 courses offered are:
4/9-4/11 and 4/23-4/25 Camp Kikthawenund
Passed

6/13-6/19 Camp Krietenstein
https://scoutingevent.com/160-2021nyltjune

9/10-9/12 and 9/24-9/26 Camp Kikthawenund
https://scoutingevent.com/160-2021nyltsept

If your scout is eligible, consider signing your scout up for these courses this year.  And RSVP on the Troop Calendar so that the Troop can grant the scout credit, and so other families know you intend to go which may encourage more participation from friends. 

The cost is $260, but scholarships are available (Due 5/15 for Summer and 8/1 for Fall).
