National Youth Leadership Training


National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops, Crews, Teams, and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

NYLT Timberwolf courses, North and South, incorporate the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital and meaningful training for today's Scouts presented by youth- to youth.  INWC offers two course dates and times to encourage all eligible Council youth to attend.  

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, KNOW, and DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.  The course is for all Scouts in Troops, Crews and Teams; male and female.  

The six day content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.
