What is Roundtable?
Roundtable is a great opportunity to learn the most up-to-date information about what is happening in Trailblazer District and the Pathway to Adventure Council. It's also a chance to network with other adult volunteers in the District and gain new, excitinig ideas for what to do with your unit. We encourage everyone to have at least one person from their unit attend our monthly roundtables. We hope to see you there!
Training is an important part of learning to become an effective leader. The important Scouting position you hold will be easier and more effective once you develop the skills necessary to deliver a quality Scouting program every Scout desires. Every Scout deserves a trained leader.
Specific questions about training opportunities in Trailblazer District can be directed to our training chair, Sam Meyer at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Scouting Program is different from other youth programs. Properly delivered the Scout Program provides youth the chance to develop in an age appropriate way to become a self-reliant member of society with positive personal character.

National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT)
National Youth Leadership Training, NYLT, is a one-week advanced leadership training experience for Scouts who want to become more effective in leading and teaching.
To be eligible to attend a course Scouts must be 14 years old or 13 years old and have completed 8th grade. Members of a Scouts BSA troop must also be First Class rank or above. In 2019 only, girls registered in Scouts BSA may attend NYLT without first achieving the First Class rank if they meet the age requirements and complete Introduction to Leadership Skills for Troops (ILST). Girls registered as Venturers do not need to achieve the First Class rank, but must complete Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC) prior to participating in NYLT.
Scoutmasters, identify Scouts who should attend NYLT and encourage them to take the next leadership training step. Questions: email email@example.com
Membership questions can be directed to Trailblazer District's Membership Chair, Jeff Minard: firstname.lastname@example.org
