NYLT 2015 Information Released

The 2015 edition of the National Youth Leadership Training will be held June 21-26.
The East Texas Area Council Training Committee is committed to making NYLT a very special experience. Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts will live in a patrol setting at the George W. Pirtle Scout Reservation where they use their leadership skills to resolve exciting and challenging outdoor situations. The event will conclude with a closing challenge for each Scout to build upon what they have learned throughout the week.

NYLT will equip youth leaders to be better unit leaders, and leave young people with invaluable life skills.  It will help guide their journey to become true “servant leaders,” able to develop all members of whichever team they lead. It provides life skills for now and the future.

Course participation is limited, so send in your application ASAP!2015 NYLT Participant application.pdf

The World Will Be Scouting

In 2015, more than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 161 countries around the world will converge on Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi, Japan, for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. The event will provide opportunities to raise awareness about global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology.

The world jamboree is a unique opportunity for participants to experience an exciting program of activities, including: Global Development Village, City of Science, Cross Road of Culture, and the Peace Program.

Participants will live and learn with fellow Scouts from around the world. They will be housed in tents along with the BSA contingent but will soon venture out to mingle with tens of thousands of people for two weeks of activities and adventure. That’s right, a world fellowship exercise on an enormous scale!
