Youth Leadership Training
Mark calendars to attend Troop 395’s Individual Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) training class. The course will be held Friday, June 17th and Saturday, June 18th at Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church. It is a pre-requisite for holding leadership positions within Troop 395 and also for the National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) conducted on the Council level. The Heart of America Council offers the NYLT course at Camp Naish every summer. Unfortunately it is held during the first session at Bartle that Troop 395 attends. In order to get credit for NYLT or Mic-O-Say, a Scout must be full-time camper at the corresponding session. Other options are available as several neighboring councils will conduct their NYLT training later in the summer. The information below can help your Scout make plans to attend a NYLT course.
