Welcome to the Atlanta Area Council NYLT

Welcome to the Atlanta Area Council NYLT

Registration for 2018 is now open!


Congratulations! You are here because you want to know more about the best youth leadership training program in Atlanta!

NYLT or National Youth Leadership Training is a week long course conducted through various times of the year to teach the basics of leadership to you or your scouts.

Scouting recognizes that Unit Leaders have the primary responsibility for training their youth leaders. The purpose of NYLT is not to assume that role, but rather to support it. This week-long course features instruction in skills that can be used at home, at school, on the job, and, in particular, at the Scout unitlevel. Through activities, events, games, and adventures, NYLT participants will work hard and play hard together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer.

















Course Vision:

The AAC National Youth Leadership Training course will provide each scout participant an experience where he can learn to Be, Know and Do the highest ideals of scouting leadership.

Course Goals:

  • Give participants the confidence and knowledge to conduct the unit program.
  • Provide participants with a clear understanding of team and personal development and how those elements relate to being a leader.
  • Guide the participants through the stages of team development.
  • Create an environment of Scouting fellowship and fun guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
  • Give participants the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with Scouts from other units.
  • Have fun and experience Scouting at its best.

This curriculum aligns the youth leadership training with the adult training in Wood Badge for the 21st Century.
