Each of our troops requires a Scoutmaster and 3 Assistant     Scoutmasters.  After interviewing candidates, the leaders have been chosen to serve.

OFFICIAL NOTICE OF THE

2009 ANNUAL DISTRICT MEETINGS

 

                 National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and   others.

                

                 The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

 

                 NYLT is a two-weekend course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment.   Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.
