Reschedule Of June NYLT Until Fall 2020
Our June NYLT course will be rescheduled to this Fall.
My first driver is about the amount of time and energy our staff would invest in the coming weeks before course. I want to respect the time of our staff and I am concerned that restrictions may be extended beyond the current May 31. If the restrictions are extended, our efforts to prepare for a June NYLT course would be wasted.
My second driver is about our adult volunteers. Many of our adult volunteers belong to the at-risk age group and thus would not be able to support the June NYLT course. I don’t have enough other adult volunteers to fill their jobs, so I can’t deliver the quality NYLT course this June that we are used to.
Our mission is to train leaders. You, our course participants, are the focus of our effort. For you, we will plan for and deliver our NYLT course this Fall.
The Fall course will be three weekends. You will receive the same high-quality training in the three weekend format. You can believe this because we have the proven success of this format with our Fall 2017 course. Also, you can believe this because we have a staff that is prepared to train you – our staff has been preparing since November and has overcome our recent meeting challenges to continue to prepare – they have done this for you.
Other details of the course are uncertain. We are working to set the place. We are working to set the dates. We plan to update you on these later this month.
The new Council Refund Policy effective March 17, 2020 - November 17, 2020 can be found here. You will have the option of requesting a 100% refund up until 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the start of the Fall Course, via an online portal. We will include more details and a link to this online portal once we have the Fall dates set this will be later this month.
Other scheduled Scouting activities within the Council in June and the remainder of summer are still on track to be held once the stay at home order ends on May 31st.
If you have questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.
I look forward to seeing you all this Fall.
Yours in Scouting,
2020 NYLT Course Director
