National Youth Leadership Training is the BSA's program thru which senior Scouts (with Scouter supervision) train younger Scouts (at least First Class and age 13) in leadership skills to incorporate in their own troops.

Here are most of this year's team of trainers, with 2 of their Scouter guides, Fred Gervat and Jaime Feliberty (there are others), at Durland Scout Reservation in Putnam Valley after Mass last Sunday morn:
