An NYLT course is ideal for training youth unit leaders. It can also be a valuable experience for older Scouts and Venturers. In order to attend an NYLT course, a youth must meet the following qualifications before the course begins:

  • Must be a registered member of a Scouting unit.
  • Must have a current BSA Health and Medical Record form parts A, B, and C.
  • Must be a First Class Scout and have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.
  • On February 1, 2019, Scouts BSA members (male and female) must be at least 13. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops. For 2019 only, an exception will be granted for girls registered in Scouts BSA to attend NYLT without first achieving the First Class rank. Male members of Scouts BSA will still be required to earn the First Class rank before attending NYLT.
  • Venturers and Sea Scouts (male and female) must be at least 14, or 13 and have completed eighth grade, and fall within the maximum age allowance for their program. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews or Ships. It is recommended that they have had at least one year of camping experience. While NYLT is not an outdoor skills course, it is important that each participant have basic camping and outdoor cooking experience.
  • Have a unit leader recommendation. (For our council the Unit Registration with the Scout Leader's Password replaces the recommendation).

Question: The Troop’s ASPL has been in the unit for over two years. He really needs training. He is a little uncomfortable and doesn’t get along well with other youth. I think NYLT can straighten him out. WRONG! Even if he meets most of the requirements to attend, when the Unit Leader signs the registration form, it is telling us that this youth is being personally recommended because of his leadership abilities and his high character. NYLT is not a boarding school! Our staff is busy training youth who already have the desire and character to be great leaders. We do not have the time to spend correcting any undisciplined youth who will only detract from the training schedule. We depend upon you; your unit will receive the benefits of this training.

Please register your troop or crew before registering individual Scouts and Venturers.  Then up to FOUR youth may be registered per unit.  If you have more than four, they should be registered on the waiting list.  The Scoutmaster or Crew Adviser will be responsible for all registrations.  He or she must enter the same password in both contingent and individual registrations to verify that the registered youth are approved.  THIS PASSWORDS SERVES AS THE RECOMMENDATION REQUIRED TO ATTEND.
You will be required to have the scouts BSA ID Number, Birth Date, Email address, Phone number and mailing address to register them.
