NYLT Leadership Academy 

NYLT Leadership Academy is the premiere leadership training for NYLT youth staff nationwide.The NYLT Leadership Academy trains youth staff to be world-class leaders, presenters and evaluators of their council National Youth Leadership Training course.

"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.
