The purpose of Wood Badge is to build stronger units. It does this by immersing leaders in a six-day experience of team building and small-group leadership skills. It is an advanced, intense, and, yes, fun training for adults 18 and older.

The purpose of NYLT - National Youth Leadership Training is the same, but geared toward 13 to 21 year olds, and it too is advanced, intense, and very fun training.

So, what is the secret? Send at least one of your adult leaders and two of your youth leaders every year. The knowledge each individual brings back to the unit is invaluable, but the combined knowledge is worth even more.
