*Welcome to Den Chief Training
Boy Scouts wishing to become den chiefs will take this online course as part
of their training to become a den chief. The class identifies den chief responsibilities
and tasks, and describes the den chief's relationship to the adult den leaders
and how that relates to the den chief's activities with the den. After finishing
the online training, den chief candidates print their certificate of completion
and undergo further training with their adult den leaders.
*Troop Leadership Training
Troop Leadership Training is organized into three one-hour modules, which can
be taught individually or all in one session. The content of the first session
focuses on what a new leader must know; the second session on what a leader
must be, and the third session on what a leader must do. Completing all three
modules qualifies the Scout to wear the "Trained" patch under his
badge of office. Completion of TLT prepares the youth to attend National Youth
Scouts Excited About Leadership Skills (S.E.A.L.S.)
S.E.A.L.S. is a Council Wide training opportunity designed for SCOUTS EXCITED
ABOUT LEADERSHIP SKILLS. This is a weekend adventure where you camp and eat
with new patrol members, while attending presentations ranging from 'How to
Take Notes', 'Communications Skills', Planning 'Effective Meetings', the how
and why of having an 'Interfaith Worship Service'; to campsite sanitation, and
running 'Start, Stop, Continue' sessions. A S.E.A.L.S. participant learns about
Scout Spirit and becomes versed in skits, and songs appropriate for troop events.
Finally, he comes away with a "contract" indicating how they intend
to use these new skills to help their patrol and troop.
National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
Known locally as Top Gun, 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.
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE)
The National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) is an exciting program
where young men enhance their leadership skills in the Philmont backcountry.
Scouts will expand upon team-building and ethical decision-making skills learned
in National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT).
