National Leadership Seminar (NLS)


The National Leadership Seminar (NLS) is a weekend conference on the skills and attributes of leadership. It is intended primarily to enhance the leadership skills of the Order of the Arrow's key youth and adult members as they seek to improve their services to the Boy Scouts of America and the greater community. The weekend format is designed to complement the longer, more detailed Wood Badge and Junior Leadership Training programs. Near the end of the seminar, participants make a contract with themselves to apply the skills studied in the seminar on projects in the lodge, council, and community. NLS prepares Arrowmen to become better leaders both within and outside of the Scouting program. 

The NLS will provide participants with:

  1. A challenging, inspiring, and enjoyable learninig experience
  2. A better understanding of the skills of leadership and how to apply them
  3. A better understanidng of themselves and of other people
  4. A realization that, with practice and work, everyone can improve their leadership skills
  5. An understanidng that leadership skills work in tandem with one another, rather than in isoloation, apart from one another
  6. An understanding that different sitatutions require the application of different leadership skills
  7. A model with which to evaluate themselves and others in the use of leadership skils

When Can I Attend?

The Northeast Region will offer NLS at the following times and places:

March 10-12, 2017 - Alpine, New Jersey

November 10-12, 2017 - Alpine, New Jersey

Developing Youth Leadership Conference (Formerly NLATS)


What is the Developing Youth Leaders Conference?

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference 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. 

Who Should Attend?

It is recommended that participants be lodge advisers or staff advisers and those with lodge adviser potential, as approved by the Lodge Adviser. Prior completion of a Lodge Leader Development Program and the National Leadership Seminar are required.  The DYLC is an intensive experience in learning about the nature of lodge program, delivery of service to the council, and development of youth leadership necessary to both. While it is designed to be fun, the course is mentally challenging as well. Participants should be open to learning and prepared to actively engage in an invigorating weekend.

When Can I Attend?

The Northeast Region will offer the NLATS at the following times and places:


March 10-12, 2017 - Alpine, New Jersey

November 10-12, 2017 - Alpine, New Jersey
