White Stag Leadership Academy
Leadership development is a life-long pursuit. Troop 127 has an excellent relationship with White Stag Leadership Academy, and each year has several of its scouts attend the Academy. At White Stag, you learn and practice leadership and problem solving skills, how to make decisions, assess your individual strengths and weaknesses, goal-setting, planning, and self-advocacy. White Stag summer camp is a fun week of hiking, backpacking, camping, campfires, outdoor games. yells, cheers, singing, and practicing the skills of leadership. During White Stag leadership camp, you get lots of chances to learn and practice leadership skills in small and large group settings.
When funds are available, the Troop has often reimbursed its scouts for part of the cost of the camp upon completion.
Youth Leadership Training Continuum
The Boy Scouts of America continues to provide opportunities for youth to develop and improve their leadership skills beyond the experiences in their local units. Click here to find out more about what courses may be of the most benefit to you.
Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST)
The ILST course is intended to help Boy Scouts in leadership positions within their troops understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. ILST replaces Troop Leadership Training and is a prerequisite for Boy Scouts to participate in more advanced leadership courses (i.e., National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE)). The link below is an excellent resource for youth leaders to improve their leadership skills.
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience
National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE) offers participants an unforgettable Philmont back country wilderness experience that develops leadership and teamwork skills, using the core elements of NYLT to make these skills intuitive.
The Fundamentals of Training
This is the first part of the three-part train-the-trainer continuum (T3, or T-Cubed) in the Boy Scouts of America. The course introduces teaching techniques and skills to new Scout trainers but is also designed to help all Scouters, regardless of their experience, present effective training. Intended for both youth and adult trainers, the course will help those who might have trained for other organizations learn the BSA's training techniques, and it will help freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers.
