WHAT IS THE NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING CONFERENCE?
The National Youth Leadership Training Conference is a seven day, outdoor training experience for Boy Scout and Venturing youth leaders. The course design and content has been developed by the National BSA Council and is offered by your local council as a supplement to the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops provided by the Scoutmasters or Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews provided by the Venture Crew Leadership.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING?
The National Youth Leadership Training Conference teaches the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. Content is delivered in a unit and group outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. The course schedule parallels the program month of a unit. Three model unit meetings, a team leaders' council meeting in the round followed by daily TLC operating sessions, an instructional campfire, and unit operation using the patrol method show how to create a productive program.
HOW TO APPLY?
The Unit Leader gives a copy of the NYLT Information Packet to each Scout who should attend. Boy Scout applicants must be of First Class rank and 13 years old by August 9, 2015.
Venturing applicants should be 14 years old by August 9, 2015.
Scouts must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (Boy Scout) or Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (Venturers).
All applicants should be in a unit leadership position currently or will be holding a position within the next twelve months. The applicants should also have some camping, hiking and cooking skills as the conference is conducted in a camp setting. Instructions for completing the application process are detailed in the Application Packet and involve registering for the course on-line and submitting several documents containing signatures of approval and medical information.
WHEN AND WHERE IS THE CONFERENCE HELD?
This year's National Youth Leadership Training Conference will be starting on August 9, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. and ending on August 15, 2015 at 8 PM at the Holcomb Valley Scout Ranch. The conference activities are carefully planned and build upon each experience. For this reason, it is not possible to accept a scout who cannot arrive on the first day and remain for the course duration.
DO PARTICIPANTS NEED A MEDICAL EVALUATION?
Yes. The Annual Health and Medical Record form is part of the application package each Scout must fill out and turn in.
WHAT PERSONAL EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED?
A personal equipment list outlining what is needed is included in the information package given to each Scout. Please make sure the Scout and his parents look over this list so they know what equipment is allowed and what should not be brought to camp.
WHAT IS THE COST?
The conference fee is $275. The fee covers all meals, program materials and camp fees. The staff is comprised of all volunteer youth and adult leaders.
