The South Georgia Council BSA is hosting a National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) course at Camp Osborn May 30 through June 5, 2021. Troop 270's Scoutmaster John Frost will be the Scoutmaster for the course.

The cost of the course is $200. A $50 down payment will reserve a place for your Scout. Scouts must be 13 years old and hold the rank of First Class Scout to attend. The registration deadline is April 30. All fees must be paid by that date.

National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership.

NYLT is a six-day course. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster.

In order to attend a NYLT course, a youth must have the following qualifications by the beginning of the course:

* 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 at least 13.
*Must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops.
* Must have a unit leader recommendation.
