The Developing Youth Leadership Conference (DYLC) focuses on the tools every adult needs to mentor and develop our outstanding youth leaders. It is built on the concepts our members learn at the National Leadership Seminar, and it uses the NLS terminology as participants learn new tools and techniques of how to mentor and develop our outstanding youth leaders. Prior attendance at a NLS is encouraged, but it is not required for the DYLC. Adults who are unsure whether NLS or DYLC might be best for them should talk to their lodge adviser for guidance or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the most unique and rewarding adviser training offered in years. Consider encouraging another adviser in your lodge to come with you and make it even more special. As a suggestion, lodge advisers might consider bringing a couple of their key chapter advisers with them as well.
Registration & Payment Instructions
All participants must register themselves using the online registration links above. The national OA office will bill councils for all registrations. Participants are responsible for paying their lodge directly for the NLS or DYLC registration fees. Some lodges and sections provide scholarships; check with your local lodge chief or lodge adviser for details and specific instructions on submitting your payment, if applicable.
Cancellation requests must be submitted to the Western Region Training Coordinator via e-mail at email@example.com. The participant’s council will not be billed for the seminar fees if the cancellation request is received at least 21 days prior to the start of the event. Within 21 days of the event, registrations are transferable to others who are not already registered, but fees will still be billed in full. To transfer a registration, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions and the name of the replacement. NLS participants can be swapped for DYLC participants and vice versa, youth or adult.
Don’t Forget: All participants need to bring a sleeping bag and uniform to the event.
