"Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project"

  • "Leadership" often gets dropped from our vocabulary when discussing "the project."

  • The word LEADERSHIP appears first in the official title because it's the primary focus of the required project.

    • Service is the valuable byproduct of the exercise.

Scoutmaster's Note:

  • Projects are about the candidate "giving leadership" and "managing people and resources," not about him or his family doing all the work.

    • "Boy led" is the aim for the Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project.

  • You are responsible for mentoring the candidates AND their families so that the "system" works for the candidates and those other Scouts participating in the project.

    • Does the candidate have a plan that meets the criteria?

    • Is he doing his part while letting others do their parts?

    • Is there too much parental or other adult involvement? 

    • You are the best judge and the District, Council, and National Council depend on you.
