National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.


The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE,  KNOW, and DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. 

NYLT is a six-day course split over two weekends. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.


In order to attend a NYLT course, a youth must have the following qualifications by the beginning of the course:


  • Must be a registered member of a Scouting unit.

  • Must have a current BSA Health and Medical Record form parts A, B, and C.

  • Must Complete the COVID-19 Risk Acknowledgment Form

  • Must be at least 13 years of age.

  • Must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.

  • Must have a unit leader recommendation.
