National Leadership Seminar
 

National Leadership Seminar, or NLS, is a weekend- long leadership skills course conducted by the Regions in Order of the Arrow. Each Region holds National Leadership Seminars to strengthen leadership within their regions, to promote events such as NOAC, and to increase participation in the region.

 At a National Leadership Seminar, you will not only strengthen your leadership skills, but also have fun. Throughout the weekend, you will experience fellowship with your peers, excellent food, and competitive games.
The one thing about NLS that is different from NYLT and other leadership courses is that although the skills you learn are useful in scouting, those same skills are applicable in all aspects of your life and help prepare you for leadership in almost any setting imaginable.

Developing Youth Leadership Conference

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference (DYLC) will deepen an adviser’s capacity to develop youth leadership within the lodge and chapter. Conference topics will include fostering a growth mindset, promoting resilience, providing constructive feedback that leads to changes in youth behavior and creating a life-long coaching/mentoring relationship. Conference participants will gain insights necessary to successfully coach youth applying the leadership skills they gained during the National Leadership Seminar.

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference will move us beyond lodge mechanics and operations to establishing a lodge and chapter culture that grows youth who are capable of establishing goals, building teams, and guiding the lodge’s work to achieve Journey to Excellence. Prior participation in the National Leadership Seminar is encouraged, but not required.
