Why NYLT? As Scout leaders you must go through training to be in your position (New Leader Essentials, Leader Specific, OLS). Why shouldn’t a scout have to also? Scouting is a boy-run organization, if you don’t give them the skills to run a scouting program it is unrealistic to believe they can.
What else does NYLT offer? A safe haven and a “special place” to enjoy the outdoors Examples of the patrol method and boy-led program Songs, skits, cheers, etc. to bring to home troop Chance to make lasting friends FUN!!!!!
