The Trail to Troop Leadership Training
(As commented in Wood Badge FB group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2216598259)).
Start doing ILST in your troop, then take them to NYLT (13), make graduates do their personal vision and goals to teach and serve within troop. Motivate them to go back to NYLT as staff (14,15,16). Some of them should go to NAYLE (15,16). Like our FB page NFC NYLT National Youth Leadership Training for pictures.
Our scouts elect a new SPL and PLs each 6 months and they know that they have to elect wisely. SPL picks their ASPLs and troop officers. Exercising these jobs are great for youth leadership practice. A boy-led troop only needs the EDGE method with adults Guiding and Enabling and less Demonstrating and Explaining. Let the boys do the Explaining and Demonstrating. I will post this in my blog (www.scoutingadventures.org
) and FB page at Scouting Adventures
