National Youth Leadership Training




National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting, action-packed program designed to provide youth members with leadership skills and experiences they can use in their home troops, teams, crews, personal lives, and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

NYLT is a six-day outdoor experience for current and future troop, crew & ship leaders. NYLT parallels the program month of a typical Scouting unit. It presents leadership skills in multiple formats providing the opportunity for participants to live and practice these leadership skills. Virtually all of the training is conducted by the youth staff. The course follows BSA’s National Youth Leadership Training Curriculum.
