NYLT Recruitment in Open Discussion - Program Posted August 3, 2019 · Edited August 3, 2019 by Treflienne typo On 4/25/2007 at 3:26 PM, Eagledad said: We found that most scouts come back pretty hyped up from the course. But interestingly the main complaint about the course was basically the same from the scouts and adults. They didnt see any noticeable difference in Troop program and performance after the scouts came back from the course. The scouts complained the adults wouldnt let them try the new skills, and the adults were frustrated the scouts werent using any new skills. Further study found that the problem was the adults didnt really know what the scouts learned; therefore they didnt know how to help the scouts take advantage and use the new skills. The scouts on the other hand didnt really make an effort to use their new skills because they didnt really know how to implement new habits and skills into the existing environment, which was much different from simulated program in the course. Hi Barry ( @Eagledad ) and company, I realize this is resurrecting a very old thread. But do you have any advice for the adults on how to help the scouts take advantage of and use the new skills they have learned at NYLT when they come back to their troops? I have three scouts going to NYLT later this summer . . . and yes I really don't know what the scouts are going to learn there.
