The College of Youth Leadership (CYL) is a leadership training put on by Wauna La-Mon’tay Lodge. CYL is open to any Scout who wants to come – Arrowman or otherwise. CYL isn’t just for experienced scouts – any scout, regardless of leadership experience or ability, is welcome. At CYL, leadership skills are taught in a hands-on environment through games and interactive classes.

CYL Offers Three Tracks
You will need to register for one of three tracks as described here.

Intro Track

This track puts an emphasis on basic leadership. Scouts will learn the required material to best lead a patrol. Skills learned include how to lead small groups, team building, goal setting, and other essential leadership knowledge. Experiences from this course can be carried over to larger leadership positions later in scouting. This track is best for newer scouts who have some experience in the program and are seeking to learn leadership skill to support small team (patrol) leadership. Scouts who have been in the program for a few years can take this track if they haven’t had a leadership position or seek to enhance their basic leadership abilities.

Advanced Track

This track is designed to develop or enhance Senior Patrol Leaders or more mature scouts with skills to take back to their troops . Advanced leadership skills are used in this track to improve upon previous experience and training. Scouts that have completed this course will have the knowledge and skill to effectively and correctly lead their troop as a role model and leader. Older scouts will find that this track will utilize skills that they already have and present them new ideas so that they will be the best leader they can be. This track is designed for more mature scouts with leadership experience and a few years in the program, or those that have already attended a College of Youth Leadership, NYLT, or other scouting leadership course.

OA Track

This track is designed for those Arrowmen who whant to improve their overall leadership. Attendees will learn about the five practices of exemplary leadership and further strengthen their own leadership abilities. The skills learned in this course can be applied to help better serve their unit, chapter and lodge. This track is for OA members who are intrested in being an upcomming leader in the OA.
