Tecumseh Council National Youth Leadership Training will take place June 2-8, 2019 at Camp Birch.

Course Overview

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.

Built on the legacy of past JLT successes, the new NYLT 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 skill and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.

 Throughout the course, the staff will be modeling the concepts and skills that are the core content of the course.

Each session combines knowledge with building a foundation of practical skills that enable scouts to lead.
