National Youth Leadership Training is an exciting, action-packed program designed for councils to provide youth members with leadership skills and experience they can use in their home troops and in other situations demanding leadership of self and others.

For many years, junior leader training (JLT) was an important part of the leadership training continuum of BSA local councils throughout America. In 2003 and 2004, a task force of leadership experts and hundreds of Scouts in pilot courses across the nation reviewed and tested every aspect of the new NYLT syllabus, which incorporates the latest leadership ideas and presents fresh, vital and meaningful training for today’s Scouts.

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. Content is delivered in a troop and patrol 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 legacy of past JLT successes, the new NYLT integrates the best of modern leadership theory with the traditional strengths of the Scouting experience. 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.

Mount Rubidoux Cedar Badge, what a success!

 

Patrol spirit soars at Cedar Badge ILST

The 48 Scouts attending Cedar Badge -- Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops earlier in May beat the heat (93 degrees!) with patrol and Scouting spirit. Mt. Rubidoux District’s overnight course combined BSA’s newly revised ILST and the Patrol Leader Handbook. The course was held at the wonderful park behind the LDS Church on Blaine Street in Riverside. The course drew Scouts from two other districts and from out of council, which also provided a training team of one adult and two youths. Troops 2, 270 and 16 in MR District also provided training teams. The next course will be in October. Here’s a video to show what you missed!

Eagle Scout Project

 

 

To say that Timothy Carlson likes aviation is an understatement.

As a student pilot, he is just a few flights away from earning his private pilot’s license. He will graduate from Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy in Riverside next month, and he plans to attend San Bernardino Valley College for its aviation maintenance technician program.

Carlson wants to become a commercial pilot one day, and he spent about 18 months restoring an aircraft at March Field Air Museum for his Eagle Scout project.

He began working on the cosmetic restoration of a Folland MK1 Gnat, produced by Hindustan Aeronautics, on Sept. 24, 2016. The project was officially completed Feb. 25, 2018, after more than 1,300 man hours had been logged for the project.

“One of the main reasons that my project took so long is because I had a standard I wanted to meet with the end result,” Carlson said in his project narrative. “This project was the most challenging thing I have ever done.”

Jeff Houlihan, director for Collection, Exhibits and Restoration at March Field Air Museum, wrote a letter to the Boy Scout Council about Carlson’s complex challenge of restoring the vintage Indian Air Force F-1 Gnat jet fighter.

“During each phase of this complicated restoration process; planning, organization and execution, Tim exhibited a level of competency worthy of the finest museum professional,” wrote Houlihan, who also served as Eagle Project coordinator. “His attention to detail and great respect for the fragility and historical import of the aircraft ensured success.”

One day when Carlson was at the museum working on the project, he said one of the volunteers, who was from India, pulled him aside and thanked him for restoring a “piece of her home.” She said that whenever she looked at the Gnat, it took her back to her homeland.

“When I was told that, I realized that this project was bigger than just an Eagle Scout project,” he said.

Carlson turned 18 May 6, the day he was awarded his Rank advancement and was recognized for his nomination for The National American Legion Eagle Scout of the Year award, which will be named later this month. Carlson, nominated through the Harold W. Hyland American Legion Post 53 of Hemet, was the only nominee from Riverside County.

“His Eagle Scout project is the most intense I have witnessed in my scouting career,” said Russell Mills, unit commissioner for California Inland Empire Council BSA for the San Jacinto Valley, who has been involved with scouting the past 50 years.

The formal Eagle Scout presentation ceremony was held at March Field Air Museum in Riverside where the restored aircraft is housed. When Carlson was 11, he started as a Boy Scout with Troop 007. He joined Troop 6006 in 2015.

“Tim uses his passion for flying to guide his enthusiasm for life,” wrote Shawna Lewis, Teaching Vice Principal at Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy, in a recommendation letter.

Carlson said he likes the freedom he feels when he’s at the controls.

“You don’t worry about anything when you are flying; you leave all your problems on the runway,” he said.

Carlson has served as a Junior Docent at March Field Air Museum since 2016, guiding visitors and training volunteers. Now he will be able to show his own work: The restored Gnat sits at the front of the museum in its main hangar.

He said the most important lesson he learned while giving up weekends, holidays and vacations to complete his Eagle Scout project is how important it is to keep your word.

“If you say you will take on a task, you keep doing it until it’s finished,” Carlson said. “There were times when I went to work on this project alone, not because I necessarily wanted to but because it was my responsibility to make it happen – I gave my word it would be done.”
