3 Teir Youth Leadership Training

Can anyone tell be the three tiers to the youth leadership training continuum. Let me give you a hint it begins with Troop Leadership Training.So Now that you know that the three courses our TLT, NYLT, and NAYLE. Lets talk about what each class is about.
  • TLT- Troop Leader Training- Is usually conducted by the Scoutmaster with assistance from other adults, the SPL, or other qualified youth leaders which would most likely either be a Troop Instructor or Junior Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is based around three training sessions. The First is known as the be section which gives you a introduction to your specific leadership position. This is usually conducted on a individual basis but can also be done as a group. The second session is the know it talks about how to fulfill the responsibilities of your position. The final session is the know session and it talks about the expectations of you while in a leadership position.
  • NYLT- National Youth Leader Training- National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) is run at the council level as a week-long course, generally for the senior Scout leaders. This course is known by many different names throughout the country. Each council sets specific requirements for attendance at this course. It would be best to contact you local council to find out more specific information.
  • NAYLE- National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience- The mission of National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience is to provide Scouts with a Philmont-based wilderness encounter that motivates them to follow a life of helping others succeed based on the values expressed in the Scout Oath and Law. The Scouts experience such high-adventure activities as COPE, wilderness first aid, a high-level geocache hunt, conservation, Leave No Trace, and a search-and-rescue activity. This is complemented by learning the history and inspiration of the Philmont Scout Ranch as well as a personal journal that focuses on the Scout's leadership skills. Philmont leadership is committed to making NAYLE a very special experience. The Scouts live in a patrol setting at Rocky Mountain Scout Camp where they use their leadership skills to resolve exciting and challenging backcountry situations. The week concludes with a closing challenge for each Scout to build upon the legacy of Waite Phillips, the benefactor of the Philmont Scout Ranch.
