Staff Application Page

This year, all Staff applications will be done on-line. This allows us to update all staff information and reduces the chance of data errors.

Staff Interviews: December 2 and 14, 2017

To apply for staff, follow these steps. Submit application by November 27.

  1. Review the calendar and discuss with your parents/guardians to assure that they agree with you committing the time to NYLT.
  2. Talk to your unit leader and confirm that he/she will approve your application when NYLT contacts him/her. We will contact your leader by email once your application is submitted.
  3. Click on the attached PDF and fill in the application form. Make sure you fill in everything as partially filled applications cannot be processed. This is a PDF form application. We strongly recommend that you fill out the form on a desktop or laptop computer (not on a phone). Using an iPhone is possible but the steps are not obvious.
  4. Save a copy and then submit the completed form by hitting the Submit Button. It will ask you to enter your name and e-mail address. This provides the PDF form processing software information to allow easy collection of the data.
  5. Send a copy of the completed form to info@sfbac-nylt.org as back-up to assure that the application was received.

Providing your application is complete and we have your unit leader approval, we will contact you to set up a time for a short interview in early December.  Once we have interviewed all of our applicants, we will send out staff member invitations, probably by the end of the year.  Those invitations will include a private web link with instructions on how to review and correct any of the information you entered during your application, upload a picture, enter dietary restrictions, and ask you to read and agree to abide by the NYLT Code of Conduct.  

We start our training program in January and will need you to bring copies of your BSA medical forms to the first training event (Please do NOT send them to us electronically) in preparation for the training weekends in February and March.


Adult applications will be done in a similar fashion except the NYLT Course Director will shedule a time to discuss the expected duties and then you will be asked to verify your data, add a picture and agree to the NYLT Code of Conduct. For details on where we need help, please review the Adult Staff Page.
