NER NYLT Course Directors Conference
October 24-26, 2014


NYLT Leadership Academy has worked wonders for me.  I came here with pretty low confidence, and I am leaving here entirely confident.  The change is dramatic, and this course proved to me that I can be a leader and overcome my weaknesses.  I LOVE this course!  It has inspired me so much to be the leader I’ve always dreamed of being.

-Mary Beth, Cradle of Liberty Council, NYLT Leadership Academy Graduate

NYLT Leadership Academy is developed to support local council NYLT staff.
It is a direct descendant of the Youth Staff Development Course (YSDC), the
National Junior leader Instructor Camp (NJLIC), previously offered at Philmont and the
train-the-trainer instructor courses originally delivered at Schiff Scout Reservation.
