Scouts BSA Intro to Leadership Skills for Troops and Crews
Does your troop teach Leadership Skills or maybe struggle with how to do it? Look no further than the Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILTS)! The purpose of the ILST course is to teach Scouts with leadership positions about their new roles and how to most effectively reach success in that role.
This course is intended to help Scouts in leadership positions within their troop understand their responsibilities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities. ILST is the first course in the series of leadership training offered to Scouts and is a replacement for Troop Leadership Training. Completion of ILST is a prerequisite for Scouts to participate in the more advanced leadership courses National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) and the National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience (NAYLE).
