Allow your Scout to make the most of himself at NAYLE.How Is the Youth Leadership Training Continuum Like Adult Training?Historically, the Wood Badge course was patterned after the youth Junior Leader Training course. A Month in the Life of a TroopNYLT is a six-day course where the Scouts live and work in an outdoor setting as part of a patrol within the NYLT troop. The adult training converted to more modern leadership techniques and skills in 2001, with the rollout of the Wood Badge for the 21st Century course.
They experience the simulation of a month in the life of a troop, complete with patrol leaders' council meetings and planning for the big monthly outing (the outpost overnight trip at the end of the course).
In 2004, NYLT followed suit, completely revamping its tone to encompass the newer "shared leadership" model that is proving to be so effective in team development and accomplishing visions, goals, and plans. They use the patrol method throughout the course and rotate leadership positions so that each can experience different roles. There is an immediate application of learning in a variety of structured and fun events.The first days of the course equal three weeks of a troop, including troop and patrol leaders' council meetings, and a wide range of activities and games such as a campwide geocache game and a session on realistic first aid. In 2006, the circle was complete and now Wood Badge is fully aligned with the youth training, the Scoutmaster Handbook, and the Boy Scout Handbook.Training Summary and ConclusionThe youth leadership training continuum provides the ultimate in leadership training for our boys, on a par with materials presented to corporate board members.
They learn to set a vision, with goals and plans, and use this process to plan for the big troop event, which gives them a chance to test their plans. Through each stage of their Scouting experience, the youth learn and build upon skills that will make them the best possible leaders for their unit as well as further instill in them the values of the Scouting program. They experience learning through action at its best.Each patrol is also given a challenge to create a shared vision of success.
While we have expectations of the Scouts who attend training, we need the support of the adults in these Scouts' lives to get feedback about their experience and have the Scouts explain how they can best use their new skills. They use this shared vision throughout the course to help achieve all they can as a patrol. Adults need to encourage each trained Scout to use his skills in the troop environment and in his day-to-day life so that he will improve and eventually master the skills that he learned.
Each patrol works on the quest for the meaning of leadership and, at the end of the course, presents their understanding of this and other concepts they have learned throughout the week as a skit, song, or something they build—the possibilities are endless.2. Four Stages of Team DevelopmentAll teams (and individuals) go through development stages when facing any new task or project. At the same time it is educative, and (like Mercy) it is apt to benefit him that giveth as well as him that receiveth." (from the foreword of Aids to Scoutmastership). As they begin to realize the task may be harder than they thought, and that their skills may need some work, their enthusiasm dips.
Soon, however, they begin to gain some expertise in the skill, and their confidence begins to grow.
