Developing Youth Leadership Conference

Developing Youth Leadership Conference

nlats logoWhat is the Developing Youth Leadership Conference?

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference will deepen an adviser’s capacity to develop youth leadership within the lodge and chapter. Conference topics will include fostering a growth mindset, promoting resilience, providing constructive feedback that leads to changes in youth behavior and creating a life-long coaching/mentoring relationship. Conference participants will gain insights necessary to successfully coach youth applying the leadership skills they gained during the National Leadership Seminar.

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference will move us beyond lodge mechanics and operations to establishing a lodge and chapter culture that grows youth who are capable of establishing goals, building teams, and guiding the lodge’s work to achieve Journey to Excellence. Prior participation in the National Leadership Seminar is encouraged, but not required.

Who Should Attend?

It is recommended that participants be lodge advisers or staff advisers and those with lodge adviser potential, as approved by the local council Scout Executive. Prior completion of a Lodge Leader Development Program and the National Leadership Seminar are desirable. The DYLC is an intensive experience in learning about the nature of lodge program, delivery of service to the council, and development of youth leadership necessary to both. While it is designed to be fun, the course is mentally challenging as well. Participants should be open to learning and prepared to actively engage in an invigorating weekend.

When Can I Attend?

The Northeast Region will offer the DYLC at the following times and places: March 9 - 11, 2018- Alpine, New Jersey - 441 Route 9W, Alpine, NJ 07620 November 9 - 11, 2018- Alpine, New Jersey - 441 Route 9W, Alpine, NJ 07620
