National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program
designed to provide youth members of the Boy Scouts of America with
leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other
situations demanding leadership of self and others.
For many years, junior leader training (JLT) was an important part of the
leadership training continuum of BSA local councils throughout America. In
2003 and 2004, a task force of leadership experts and hundreds of Scouts in pilot
courses across the nation reviewed and tested every aspect of the new NYLT
syllabus, which incorporates the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital,
and meaningful training for today’s Scouts.
