National Youth Leadership Training

During the Fall, BSA National updated its policy requiring that NYLT courses must now operate under the linked Troop model with same-gender youth staff and participants. While we actively seek girls who had completed NYLT to staff our 2022 Course, all potential staff candidates have declined – both within and outside Monmouth. Therefore, not being able to provide the required, qualified female staff, results in us not able to conduct an NYLT course for female participants this year – further limiting the pool of future staff candidates. We certainly want to transform this potentially vicious cycle into one where our girls can develop their leadership skills. We have provided a list of near-by Council’s NYLT courses and their dates in order for eligible girls to continue their leadership training and potentially become future Monmouth Council NYLT staff members.

Other Local Councils Offering NYLT

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. A task force of leadership experts and hundreds of Scouts in pilot courses across the nation reviewed and tested every aspect of the current NYLT syllabus, which incorporates the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital, and meaningful training for today’s Scouts.
