NYLT 2021 Course Announcement - Signups available via GGAC

Posted by rhertel on Feb 15 2021 - 11:37pm
NYLT is the next level of  training for Scouts interested in leadership skills. Operated by the GGAC, Scouts are put in patrols with peers across the Council and will learn and exercise leadership skills applicable to Scouting as well as small group settings often found in group and team activities like sports, school, and work. NYLT experience is not required for Troop leadership, but most who seek to become SPL or lead in other ways find NYLT highly beneficial to them personally.
There are two NYLT courses, open for registration for 1st Class and above Scouts who are at least 13 years old as of the course date, and for all Venturers.  Each youth applying must have Scoutmaster approval. Scouts taking this course will also be expected to hold a leadership position during the Spring/Summer term with the Troop, which will allow them to more easily complete the take-home portion of NYLT (which is a personal leadership project designed to reinforce learning from the NYLT sessions.) See more after the break.

An update on the New Merit Badge, date change for Eagle Rank requirements postponed

Posted by rhertel on Jan 10 2021 - 2:28am

As noted in an earlier announcement, it was stated that the new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge would become available January 1 and required for any Eagle advancement after May of this year. Per an announcement first made on the Commissioners Facebook page and now confirmed on Scouting.org, the release of the content and the change in Eagle Rank requirements is being delayed pending further review. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion merit badge was announced as a program change in July of 2020, with the expected content to be released in January of 2021. Comments from the Scouting membership have caused the committee to review the goals and content of the program, and no new date has been set either for the content release or the requirements change to the Eagle Rank. At this time the BSA has advised they will give "adequate time" to earn the badge. If you are approaching your Eagle Rank, please make sure you pay attention to this change and any news on the topic.
