National Youth Leadership Training

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is the premier youth leadership training course of the Boy Scouts of America. The course is led by a Senior Team Leader and a team of trained youth staffers who went through the course themselves. Following a national syllabus, participants will be organized into teams and be involved in team-building exercises demonstrated and modeled by the youth staff in both classroom and outdoor learning centers. By working within teams and interacting with participants from other units, they will be able to immediately begin to practice the new skills they learn during the course, they will return to your unit with goals that they have developed to improve your program.

Who Can Attend


To attend NYLT, a Boy Scout must be 13 years of age by the start of the course and have completed seventh grade, and is at least First Class. No exception can be made to the age and rank requirements. A Venturer must have the recommendation of their crew advisor. All Scouts should have taken Introduction to Leadership Skills course prior to attending NYLT in their home troop or crew.
