Youth training courses commonly feature training on leadership strategies, mentoring and time management. Organizations that provide training for specific roles and promotions, such as the Boy Scouts of America, may provide youth training on specific duties of a den chief, troop member or crew officer.
Youth training may also revolve around life skills, self-discipline, the value of collaboration and cooperation, and creative strategies to express feelings while communicating with others. Training focused on physical and health competence includes lessons on health practices, first aid, mental health, stress and anger management strategies, and the process of building relationships, making decisions and solving problems.
Some youth training programs focus on vocational competence such as how to make career choices, plan work and leisure activities and achieve career goals.
