                            National Youth Leadership Training

Narragansett Council, BSA

10 Risho Avenue

East Providence, RI 02914-0777


Dear Scoutmaster/Crew Advisor/Skipper:


The Narragansett Council extends an invitation for you to send outstanding youth scout leaders from your unit to attend National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).


NYLT is designed to provide your scout with a virtual “tool box” of leadership skills and knowledge to confidently return to your home unit and effectively run a youth-led program. Following a national syllabus, participants will be organized into teams (Patrols), and be involved in team-building exercises demonstrated and modeled by the youth staff in both classroom and outdoor learning centers. By working within teams (Patrols), and interacting with participants from other units, they will be able to immediately begin to practice the new skills they learn during the course. Upon completion of the course, they will return to your unit with goals that they have developed to improve your program.

Due to increasing demands, NYLT will again serve 48 participants in three separate courses.  The courses are also open to all Venture Crew and Sea Scout Youth Leaders, (female and male), as well as Boy Scout Troop Youth Leaders.  The courses will be led by a Senior Team Leader (SPL), and team of trained youth staffers who are themselves graduates of the program. The youth staff is guided by the Course Director (Scoutmaster) and the program is supported by a team of trained adults, providing for health and safety as necessary.


To attend NYLT, a Boy Scout must have approval of their Scoutmaster, be at least 13 years of age by the start of the course, have completed 7th grade, and be at least First Class.  No exceptions can be made to the age and rank requirements.  A Venturer must have the recommendation of their Crew Advisor. Sea Scouts must have recommendation of their Skipper. All Scouts should have taken Introduction to Leadership Skills course prior to attending NYLT in their home Troop, Crew or Ship. 


Registration is first come first serve, so please register early.  Please note that you are registering specific youth and not ‘reserving slots’ in the course. In the event a registered youth cannot attend, there will be no substitutions permitted.
