NYLT-National Youth Leadership Training

NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING (NYLT): This is an intensive week-long youth directed leadership training experience. The training is conducted by highly qualified youth staff under the supervision of adult advisers using the National Youth Leadership Training syllabus, as published by the National Council, Boy Scouts of America. Scouts will be modeling the concepts and skills that are the core content of the course. The focus of each session is not only knowledge but also giving the youth a "Toolbox of Leadership Skills" to prepare them for leadership roles within your troop, team or crew.  Both male and female youth Venturing and Sea Scouts are encouraged to attend the course.

The Garden State Council is offering two courses this summer.
