About the National Leadership Seminar

The National Leadership Seminar (NLS) is a weekend training program focusing on leadership development. NLS provides an in-depth look at leadership skills and techniques and how these skills can be applied to your role in the OA and in other aspects of your life.

The program enhances 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 their communities. The format complements the longer NYLT and Wood Badge training programs. During the seminar, participants make a contract with themselves to apply the skills they learned on projects in their lodge, council, and community.

NLS is open to both youth and adults.

About the Developing Youth Leadership Conference

The Developing Youth Leadership Conference (DYLC) focuses on the tools every adult needs to mentor and develop our outstanding youth leaders. DYLC will deepen an adviser’s capacity to develop youth leadership within the lodge and chapter. Conference topics 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. Prior attendance at a NLS course is not required but encouraged.
