NCAC will be conducting a Winter break NYLT course in an effort to better
support the Council's needs to provide advanced youth leadership training.
This NYLT course will cover all the requirements presented in the BSA
National NYLT syllabus over the course of two weekends. NCAC has conducted
NYLT in the two-weekend format in the past; however, this course is
scheduled around school breaks. Because of the month long break between
sessions, participants will be required to coordinate a "patrol project"
with members of their patrol between sessions and present their completed
project on weekend two.
The camp has heated facilities for instruction. Bunkhouses (unheated) will
be used for the majority of sleeping; however, weather depending, the youth
will spend one night in their own tent. Enrollees will receive a packing
list and further instructions. Regardless of the weather, outdoor
application of skills activities will occur outdoors.
Another difference from the weeklong course is the weekend program does not
allow as much opportunity for patrol cooking, therefore allowing the
compressed schedule to focus on the leadership instructions.
16 - 18 January 2016
13 - 15 February 2016
(both weekends must be attended)
(The cost for the Course will be $250)
What is NYLT?
NYLT (Impeesa) is the National Capital Area Council’s presentation of the National Youth Leadership Training. The objective of our NYLT program is to equip our young people with leadership skills to help them succeed in their scouting program and in LIFE. NYLT brings together scouts from all over the Council to learn and practice the leadership techniques in a risk free, scout friendly environment. The Scouts learn and practice leadership skills and styles together.
The course is presented primarily using a Boy Scout model as the vehicle which allows all attendees to SEE how leadership skills fit into the scouting program. These Leadership skills are applicable to all scouting programs.
Why Have NYLT?
While it remains the responsibility of the unit leaders to train the youth leaders, this course is designed to supplement the adult leaders’ role in the training process. NYLT skills build on the fundamental leadership skills presented in the unit basic leadership training in their home unit. This training conference has six specific objectives:·
