Thank you for your interest in the Three Fires Council’s National Youth Leadership Training conference.

What is National Youth Leadership Training?

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is an exciting and powerful program designed to provide members of Scouting units with leadership skills and experience they can use to lead themselves and others throughout their lives.

This week-long outdoor experience for Scouts who are 13 or older and are at least First Class; or a member of a Crew, Ship, or Post; represents a month in the model life of a typical Scout unit.

The NYLT course centers on the concepts of what a leader must BE, KNOW, and DO. What a leader must BE. What a leader must KNOW. What a leader must DO.

NYLT integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skills and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, events, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting has to offer.
