Most instructor-led courses
can be taught at a place and time that is convenient for your unit. Please contact your District Training Chairperson for more information. If you are willing to host one of these courses, please consider allowing us to invite participants from other units to attend, as that makes for more productive discussions and more effective sharing of tips and techniques.

National Youth Leadership Training 2017

National Youth Leader Training (or NYLT) is a week long leadership training program for boy leaders developed by the Boy Scouts of America and offered by the Scout Council.  The week long conference is designed to train the Scout and Venturer in team building and leadership in an outdoor experience.  Scoutmasters and Crew Advisors are encouraged to provide opportunities within the unit for application and use of leadership training learned at the conference so that the youth applies the skills he learned during the conference.  The course is conducted by a staff of volunteer Scouts and Venturers and adult advisors selected by the Training Committee of the Monmouth Council.  

NYLT is not another summer camp, but an intense, challenging, leadership experience.
