Are you looking to enhance your leadership skills and become a better leader in your troop or crew? Then the NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING course offered by the Chippewa Valley Council is the place for you. NYLT is an intense and challenging program experience designed to strengthen the leader in you through a fun and exciting week filled with adventure and team building.
The National Youth Leadership Training Course focuses on the concept of what a leader must BE . . . what a leader must KNOW. . . most importantly, what a leader must DO!
NYLT goes beyond simply teaching about leadership and becomes a hands-on leadership program by allowing Scouts to both live and experience it. Participants are split into patrols mentored by a Staff Troop Guide and each participant has an opportunity to lead the patrol for a day as Patrol Leader. The week comes alive as the patrol goes on a quest for the meaning of leadership culminating in an overnight outpost hike that allows them to use everything they have learned about leadership in a real world setting.
The next course will be held June 14 - 20, 2015 at Camp Phillips Winter Camp. The Chippewa Valley Council’s National Youth Leadership Training provides knowledge, experience, and leadership skills for life.
Any Scouts who attended NYLT in 2013 or 2014 are welcome to be considered as NYLT Team Staff!
