Intro to Leadership Skills Troops

Efrain Alvarado (for Scouts AND Scouts BSA Leaders)

Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops and Crews (ILST) is the unit based training which prepares youth members to assume leadership roles within the local unit. It is also a prerequisite for participation in National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT). It allows youth to increase their knowledge and skill base in a practical and useful fashion. This particular version of the course has been specifically designed to be delivered remotely during the current health crisis. Modules 1 & 2 cover the Unit Organization, Creating a Vision, Goal Setting, Communication, Planning and Delegation, and the Stages of Team Development. These two modules are self-taught and take approximately forty minutes and must be completed at My.Scouting.Org prior to Module Three. Upon completion of these two modules, a certificate of completion will be awarded and is a prerequisite to the live Module 3. The live interactive module, the heart of the course, covers Team Development and Characteristics, Group Decisions, Leadership Styles and Tools, Ethics and Values, and the EDGE method. Participants completing the full course will be better prepared and more confident in carrying out their roles as servant leaders.
