National Youth Leadership TrainingNYLTimage

NYLT Course held in Spring 2018

Thank you to all scouts who participated in the LTC National Youth Leaders Training (NYLT) course this spring. NYLT is the premier youth leadership development course for the Boy Scouts of America within the Lincoln Trails Council. It brings together youth leaders from all over the council to learn and apply the skills they need to be effective leaders in their teams and units.

This course draws upon the most current leadership models used by corporate America, academic circles, and successful outdoor leadership organizations throughout the country. This exciting and fast-paced training discusses team development and appropriate leadership strategies to enable teams and units to reach their highest performance level.

NYLT is the ultimate experience in youth leadership training!

Watch for more information in the future regarding the 2019 NYLT Course!
