NYLT, or National Youth Leadership Training, is one of the best programs that we can put our young leaders through.

Through the course Scouts are taught many skills that help them better enable other Scouts to perform well in your units. In other words, it’s not just the Scout who attends that wins. Because of the extreme cold and snow days last winter, some schools added additional days on to the school year. This meant that those Scouts who would have attended the June course could not. A fall course was added, and in a new format – taking place over two weekends instead of in one continuous week. We’ve not offered this course locally in this format before.

As of last Friday we have only nine Scouts registered for the Fall 2014 NYLT course.  We need 16 to make it a viable course.  Please, consider having one or more of your Scouts attend this training! 

Course fee is $275, discounted to $225 if paid in full by August 15.

Course dates are:

  • Sunday, September 7 at 6pm, Mandatory Pre-Course Meeting at Wheaton Franciscan, Franklin
  • Friday, September 26 at 6pm to Sunday, September 28 at 5pm, Weekend #1 at Indian Mounds Scout Reservation
  • Friday, October 10 at 6pm to Sunday, October 12 at 7pm (including family presentation), Weekend #2 at Camp Oh-Da-Ko-Ta
