“Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops” Syllabus
The ILST syllabus in the form of a facilitator guide was published Dec 2017 with minor modifications Jul 2018. https://www.scouting.org/training/youth/
The ILST syllabus should help scouts and leaders deliver a better course. Anytime a new PLC is elected, the new PLC members should attend a unit presentation of this course before or soon after assuming their new responsibilities. See the 2018-12 Scout Roundtable for more information and presentation templates.
