NYLT Now Accepting Registrations for November Program

Patriot Path is still accepting registrations for the National Youth Leadership Training program (NYLT) in November.

The dates are Nov. 6-8 and Nov. 13-15, and the program will be held at Winnebago Scout Reservation. Participants must attend both weekends to be credited with completing the course.

What is NYLT? NYLT is a rigorous youth leadership training program that provides skills for life and is designed to benefit and enhance the leadership teams of troops and crews. It is fun, challenging and informative.

The NYLT course centers on the concepts of what a leader must BE, what a leader must KNOW, and what a leader must DO. The key elements are taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the participants go on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a seven-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun, guiding environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids which allow participants to understand and employ the “Tool Box” of leadership skills much more quickly.

Who may attend NYLT? Registered Scouts BSA 13 years of age or completed the seventh grade until 18 years of age who have obtained First Class and who have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops at their home unit.  OR: Registered Venturers and Sea Scouts 14 years of age and completed the eighth grade who have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews or Ships at their home unit. Highly recommended to have one year of camping experience.

The cost is $295 for early bird registration (by August 31, 2020), $310 for regular registration, and $340 for late registration (after October 15, 2020).
