GGAC-NYLT at a Glance
A Bit of Background
GGAC has had a youth leadership training program for many years. Over the years, it has gone by several names: Brownsea, Junior Leadership Training, and, currently, National Youth Leadership Training. Each name brought new lessons and teaching methods. The current NYLT program, introduced in 2005, incorporates widely supported teaching methods and leadership techniques, for example teaching using the Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, and Enable (EDGE) teaching method. The vision of NYLT is to teach and build GGAC youth leaders.
