National Youth Leadership Training

Experience the Ultimate in Youth Leadership Training

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed, 6-day program designed to provide youth with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home units and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others. NYLT is a three-phase training experience that uses activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support to engage participants in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skills and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, events, games and adventures. NYLT participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting has to offer.  As a result of NYLT, a participant will:

  • Become familiar with contemporary team leadership and team building concepts and how they relate at the unit level.
  • Experience the stages of team development and practice leadership approaches which are appropriate for those stages.
  • Learn to use project management and leadership methods to bring a unit together through teamwork.


All courses are open to Scouts who currently hold a leadership position or those who plan to be in a leadership position soon.

Please note that NYLT is not “summer camp”, it is a Leadership Training Course.
