Introduction To Leadership Skills For Troops (ILST) Youth Training   
2020 Spring
Introduction to Leadership Skills For Troops (ILST)
.
  • Who: Every Scout in a Troop who currently holds (or will soon hold) a leadership position, including all elected positions and any appointed positions at the discretion of the Senior Patrol Leader. In some Troops, this might mean that this course is for every Scout!
  • What: Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST)
  • When: Saturday, March 21, 2020
  • Time: 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Where: Camp Tuscarora (965 Scout Rd, Four Oaks, NC 27524)
  • Cost: $10, includes course materials and lunch.
 
Deadline to register and pay is March 6, 2020. (A $10.00 late fee will be applied to any registrations received after that date and absolutely no registrations may be added after 5:00p. on March 13, 2020.)
 
The purpose of the ILST course is to teach Scouts in leadership positions about their roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role. It is intended to help youth leadership within Troops understand their responsibilities and to equip them with the organizational and leadership skills needed to fulfill those responsibilities.

ILST is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a prerequisite to National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). This course provides tools and resources to do a better job of conducting a true youth-led Troop and emphasizes the power of the patrol method.
 
Registration must be completed online. We regret that we are unable to accept any other forms of registrations, including mailed, phoned, or “paper” registrations.
