National Youth Leadership Training

We are looking for more female Crew and Ship members to attend NYLT and are reaching out to you to encourage your female Crew members to consider attending NYLT. Your male Crew is also most welcome to attend!

Over the past 4 years –  we have had 30 female participants from 20 different ships and crews. Almost half have gone on to staff an NYLT course and many have taken leadership roles in their crews and the Council VOA.

At the most recent Venture Crew Leadership Awards ceremony, three of the four youth recipients have attended and staffed an NYLT course.
