Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews
The Introduction to Leadership Skills for Crews (ILSC) is the first step a Venturer encounters on his or her journey toward leadership development. This course is designed to be used by Advisors to teach leadership skills to all Venturers in the crew. It has nine leadership modules that begin with an activity and follow with a reflection. Completion of this course is a requirement for the Venturing Silver Award, and conducting the course is a requirement for the Unit Leader Award of Merit.

 

Kodiak Challenge
The Kodiak course combines the elements of leadership and service to others as the two key tenets of Venturing. Servant leadership is a philosophy that teaches the leader to work with and through a team to accomplish the mission.Kodiak's methods are the following: Challenging outdoor treks to use nature as a classroom (no indoor sessions). Five leadership skills, called "commissions," are taught. They can be offered over a week, or over two weekends. It uses a hands-on teaching approach with very short presentations.

 

National Youth Leadership & Gray Wolf Training
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.  Northern Star Council's program is called Venturing Gray Wolf.  Gray Wolf is offered MId to Late June.

NAYLE uses elements of the Philmont Ranger Training as well as advanced Search and Rescue skills to teach leadership, teamwork and the lessons of selfless service. NAYLE will offer Scouts an unforgettable backcountry wilderness experience where they live leadership and teamwork, using the core elements of NYLT to make their leadership skills intuitive.
