20 *%$*%""# Troop Leadership Training (TLT) is the leadership training given primarily by the Scoutmaster and the Senior Patrol Leader to all the youth leaders in their troop. Our Boy Scout troop conducts the TLT course with every leadership shift—when the Scouts in our Troop get elected to a new Leadership Position or a Patrol Leadership role, or even when they welcome a new patrol member. The course has three modules that can be presented as individual or combined sessions. These sessions are as follows: · Introduction to Troop Leadership - This is conducted within a week of a Scout assuming a new leadership role and focuses on what a new leader must know. The Scoutmaster conducts this session for the senior patrol leader and new Scouts. He may then choose other Scouts or adults to help train the other troop leaders. · How to Fulfill Your Position - The second TLT module focuses on how to fulfill the responsibility of the position and is presented by the Scoutmaster and the senior patrol leader. They may be assisted by assistant Scoutmasters or NYLT-trained Scouts. This module begins to use leadership tools such as creating a Vision of Success, the Teaching EDGE(TM) model, and the Start, Stop, Continue method of assessing progress. · What Is Expected of Me - The third module is the do —what the youth must do to be effective in his position. It is led primarily by the Scoutmaster. Each Scout is given a card with the responsibilities of his new position and those responsibilities are reviewed with him. The Scouts learn to create a vision of success for the troop as well as to define goals for how to get there. They define this vision for themselves for their new leadership position and write it on the leadership position card. %!"%)  !%$*%""# When your boy advances to the Rank of First Class he will have the opportunity to attend a National Youth Leadership Training course sponsored by our local Boy Scout Council. The NYLT course centers around the concepts of what a leader must BE, what he must KNOW, and what he must DO. The key elements are then taught with a clear focus on HOW TO. The skills come alive during the week as the patrol goes on a Quest for the Meaning of Leadership. NYLT is a six-day course at one of the many local Council Properties. Content is delivered using the “Patrol Method” in an outdoor setting with an emphasis on immediate application of learning in a fun environment. Interconnecting concepts and work processes are introduced early, built upon, and aided by the use of memory aids, which allows participants to understand and employ the leadership skills much faster. Built on the successful legacy of past Junior Leader Training, or JLT, the new NYLT integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of Scouting and emphasizing the Aims and Methods of Scouting. Through activities, presentations, challenges, discussions, and audio-visual support, NYLT participants will be engaged in a unified approach to leadership that will give them the skill and confidence to lead well. Through a wide range of activities, games, and adventures, participants will work and play together as they put into action the best Scouting has to offer. %" % Troop 22 has a strict policy when it comes to behavior on the beach, near the ocean, along estuaries, or any area of tidal influence. (a) If the soles of your shoes are wet from the surf, you are to close, and you need to immediately move back toward dry sand. (b) Don’t turn your back on the ocean. The Pacific Ocean is notorious for sneaker waves that can sweep people from the beach and out to sea, so please pay attention! (c) Stay off of logs, and loose rocks. Logs and rocks can be loosened by the surf, and can easily be rolled over on top of a person crushing, and pinning them down on the sand in the surf.  " "!"%"$, 1 *"! 1.
