Eagle Scout Projects
The eagle scout candidate must complete a significant project to earn their eagle rank. Every scout should have opportunities to perform service projects, conservation projects, and building projects throughout their scouting career, not just once at the end.
Scouts at all levels can perform worthwhile projects. These project ideas are categorized so you can find projects suitable for your scout group and the type of project you are interested in performing.
Serving others is an important part of the Scouting movement. Learning how to use our abilities to better our world helps a youth become a good citizen. Projects to benefit community or environment help scouts learn their responsibilities and that they can impact their surroundings. Don't wait until scouts are looking for Eagle Projects to introduce them to the idea of community service. Projects done as an individual, den, or pack should be undertaken as cub scouts. Scouts BSA troops and patrols should also take on projects every year in fulfilling their 'Duty to Country'. An eagle scout service project that is a real effort is a great culmination to a scout's advancement, but remember that the eagle rank is not the end of a scouting career. Scouts can continue to be leaders in the troop, join a venturing crew, and become junior assistant scoutmasters - don't lose your scouts when they become eagles.
