Sign up for Troop Leadership Training - Registration Still Open!

Posted on Oct 29 2014 - 1:13pm

This class is open to all Scouts!

The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops course is to teach Scouts with leadership positions (or those that aspire to leadership) about the leadership roles in Troops and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Boy Scouts. Completion of Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership courses - National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE).
