National Youth Leadership Staff

We’re Back and Better Than Ever!

The youth and adults serving as NYLT staff members model appropriate leadership skills in everything they do, creating a rich learning environment for the youth they are serving and for themselves. Servant leadership is an important NYLT leadership attitude, and it is critical that the staff model focus on participants and not themselves. Great leaders seek to serve others.

The youth and adult staff members of an NYLT course are charged with providing the participants with the best possible opportunity to learn effective leadership skills in a setting where the highest ideals of Scouting shine through. Essential to that effort is the fact that staff members use NYLT leadership skills and philosophies themselves, which provide them with an extremely effective means of sharing and leading teams. It also models the skills and the leadership ideals that the NYLT program seeks to convey.
