For whatever reason, National chose to rewrite its youth leadership
training. JLT is no longer the recommended syllabus, and so I chose
not to use it. And altho TLT is kinda "light", I think its best to
make a clean break from JLT.
If you don't decide to teach TLT now, when will you decide to make the
switch? I don't think its fair to the boys to continue to offer JLT
indefinitely, because TLT introduces concepts (e.g., "EDGE") that are
reinforced in the Council-level youth leadership training and again at
These concepts are also consistent with what is taught in the revised
WB21C (or so I'm led to believe).
For what its worth, the feedback I got after teaching TLT is that the
boys much preferred its 3 hour format to the day-long format of JLT.
