Selecting Leadership Service Projects

Leadership service projects shall be meaningful service not normally expected of a Scout as a part of his school, religious, or community activities.

Star and Lifer Ranks

For Star and Life ranks, a Scout must perform 6 hours of service to others. This may be done as an individual project or as a member of a patrol or troop project. Star and Life service projects may be approved for Scouts assisting on Eagle service projects. The Scoutmaster approves the project before it is started.

Eagle Rank

While a Life Scout, a Scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project to any religious institution, school, or community.

As a demonstration of leadership, the Scout must plan the work, organize the personnel needed, and direct the project to its completion.

The Eagle service project is an individual matter; therefore, two Eagle candidates may not receive credit for the same project.

Eagle Scout leadership service projects involving council property or other BSA activities are not acceptable for an Eagle service project. The service project also may not be performed for a business, be of a commercial nature, or be a fund-raiser.

Routine labor, or a job or service normally rendered should not be considered. An Eagle service project should be of significant magnitude to be special and should represent the candidate's best possible effort.

The scout must submit his proposed project idea and secure the prior approval of his unit leader, unit committee, and district or council advancement committee, or their designee, to make sure that it meets the stated standards for Eagle Scout leadership service projects before the project is started. This preapproval of the project does not mean that the board of review will accept the way the project was carried out.

Upon completion of the project, a detailed report must be submitted with the Scout's Eagle application to include the following information:

Although the project must be approved before work is begun, the board of review must determine if the project was successfully carried out. Questions that must be answered are:

All the work on the project must be done while the candidate is a Life Scout and before the candidate's 18th birthday.

The variety of projects performed throughout the nation by Scouts earning their Eagle Scout Award is staggering. Only those living in an area can determine the greatest value and need for that area. Determine, therefore, whether the project is big enough, appropriate, and worth doing.

For ideas and opportunities, the Scout can consult people such as: school administrators, religious leaders, local government department directors, or a United Way agency's personnel or Organizations such as Individual churches, Parks ,Museums ,Schools ,Homeless Shelters ,Battered Women's Shelter ,Retirement Homes ,Zoos ,Hospitals. These are by no means all of the resources the Scout can consult

The following Eagle Service Projects are by no means the only ones that can be or have been used. There are many more. However, the examples are provided to show the Life Scout the type, range and diversity of service projects. It is hoped that this list will help give some ideas and point in the direction of a project that will work well for the Life Scout. There are still many more ideas just waiting for an Eagle candidate to identify.
