WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF NYLT?

The aims of NYLT are to give each Scout or Venturer  participant a basic knowledge of various leadership skills while helping them relate these skills to their own troop/team/crew responsibilities; to give them the confidence and knowledge necessary to run their unit's program; to provide an opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other units; and of course, to have FUN.

NYLT Leadership Skills instruction includes:

  • Communicating Well
  • Finding Your Vision

  • Preparing Your Plans
  • Leading Yourself
  • Team Development
  • Solving Problems
