Silver Pines Capitol Area Council Boy Scouts of America National Youth Leadership Training December 26th, 2005 What Is National Youth Leader Training? - National Youth Leadership Training is a seven-day, six-night outdoor experience for youth leaders in support of the Scoutmaster’s responsibility for the training of troop youth leaders. Built on the legacy of past JLT successes, the new syllabus integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, NYLT participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skills and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, events, games, and adventures, NYLT participants will work and play together as they put into action the best that Scouting has to offer. The Clinton Valley Council, using a nationally approved outline under the leadership of quality volunteers, conducts the conference. What Are The Conference Objectives? - The conference gives participants: • The confidence and knowledge to run the troop program. • A working knowledge of the skills needed for leadership and help the Scouts relate these skills in their troop responsibility. • The opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other troops. • The creation of an atmosphere where Scouts will experience Scouting at its best. • The enhancement of the relationship between the participant and his Scoutmaster. • The opportunity to have fun. Who May Attend? - The conference will be open to Boy Scouts who meet the following criteria: • At least 13 years old by December 26th, 2005. • At least First Class rank. • Currently serving in a troop position of responsibility (or have the skills and abilities to do so in the future). • Previous long-term camping experience. • Be recommended/approved by his Scoutmaster (Experience tells us that the amount of benefit a young man will get from the course is directly proportional to his level of maturity, attitude and focus). Is The Home Scoutmaster Involved? - Very much so. It is expected that the troop Scoutmaster, or other designated adult scout leader, will work with the scouts prior to the conference to provide them with the basics of leadership. There are certain outdoor skills that need to be mastered prior to coming to camp. It is strongly recommended that participants be graduates of the Troop Junior Leader Training. The Scoutmaster’s role is critical to the success of the youth Scout leader in implementing their goals. Scoutmasters will be invited to a feast on Friday evening of the conference that has been prepared by the conference participants. After the feast, a training session for Scoutmasters will take place to review everything that has been done during the conference and what he/she can do to support and utilize the newly trained youth leaders.

Scouts will be ready to depart at approximately 11:30 a.m. on the final day after the clean-up and closing ceremony.
