National Youth Leadership Training~NYLT
It may seem a bit early to start talking about summer of 2019, but it will be here before you know it and plans need to be considered now for future planning. For those scouts in the troop that will be 13 by next summer, I would strongly encourage you to consider attending NYLT. What is NYLT all about you ask? "The National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the premier 6 days, 5 nights outdoor leadership experience geared towards present and future leaders of Scouting.
Participants will be engaged in hands-on training led by Western New York’s finest youth staff. The training will cover skills essential to leadership within your unit, school, and life activities. The training activities will mimic one month of your units program. This program is youth led under the mentor-ship of trained adults who provide a safe friendly Scout environment."
What great way to end the summer next year and head into school and the next scouting year with tools to help you and the troop grow. If you are interested, now is the time to start thinking about it and planning. Here is a link to this past summers NYLT program to give you some idea of the details:GNFC NYLT Course
