Now Accepting 2024 Grey Wolf NYLT Nominations

Grey Wolf Poised for Another Greyt Summer!

Grey Wolf is Northern Star Scouting’s National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). The course is designed around a model troop/crew's month. The unit is led by a youth staff trained to provide counseling and mentoring. Adult leadership is present, but the unit is run by the well-trained youth staff. Youth completing the course return to their units ready to lead and more excited for Scouting. A one-week program held at the beginning of the summer, it replicates the first three weeks of typical unit operations, including patrol leader's council meetings, troop/crew meetings, patrol meetings, and planning for a big event. Becoming a better leader is the theme, but many aspects apply to daily life.

All attending Scouts BSA members (male and female) must be at least 13 and not yet 18. They must have completed Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST) and be First Class Rank before attending NYLT.
