NATIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP TRAINING (NYLT) - BSA Adventure Camp - Rochelle
Thunderbird National Youth Leader Training, is a seven day outdoor training conference for youth leaders, which supports the Scoutmaster's or Crew Advisor's responsibility for training junior leaders. It is conducted by the Council Training Committee using a syllabus that was developed by the Boy Scouts of America. Leadership requires vision, goals and planning. Through presentations and positive experiences in goal setting, planning and problem solving, participants learn how to set a clear course toward realizing their team and individual visions, and then begin to put themselves in the center of those pictures of future success. Prospective attendees must be recommended by their unit leader. Unit Leader contact information is required in the registration. 2014 Fact Sheet - NYLT / 2014 Leader Letter - NYLT / 2014 Information Letter - NYLT
