The Eagle Project

The work required in the Eagle Service Project is designed to further develop a young man's leadership skills. The path from "Life to Eagle" is long, but certainly within the capabilities of our Scouts, as the rank has been awarded over 2.1 million times. Still, less than 2% of all boys that join Scouting earn this rank!

Most of the Eagle rank requirements are second nature to a dedicated scout. Be active. Live the Oath and Law. Successfully hold a leadership position. Earn merit badges. These things are similar to what must be done to earn Star and Life. Outlined below are additional steps that a Life Scout must follow to earn Eagle. Most importantly, remember, you are not alone! The adult leaders of our troop want you to succeed and will do everything we can to help you! When you are ready to start work on your Eagle Service Project, let us know, and we'll hold a kick-off meeting to get you started. Good Luck!

The Project:
  • Download and carefully read the Eagle Service Project workbook. This will enable the next several steps.
  • Discuss Eagle Service Project ideas with the Troop Eagle Adviser. The best projects have a long-lasting legacy.
  • Complete the Service Project Proposal and get all the required signatures.
  • Complete the Service Project Final Plan.
  • Submit Fundraising Applications as necessary.
  • Carry out your Service Project. Take pictures! Remember, you are the project manager!
  • Complete the Service Project Report.
  • Prepare all the Eagle Project paperwork for presentation in a binder or other professional format.

Letters of Recommendation:
You need letters of recommendation. You should ask for no less than five and at least three must be completed and returned to the Troop Eagle Adviser. Ask for letters from a parent, religious leader, teacher, employer, and two other people who can speak to your character. If you are unable to get a letter of recommendation from a religious leader, you must prepare a personal statement of religious belief or faith.

Statement of Ambitions and Life Purpose:
You must write a statement of life purpose. This is your opportunity to tell members of your board of review what you do outside Scouting. Include honors, awards, and plans for the future. Brag!

Complete the Application Form:
The Eagle Application Form asks for many details from your Scouting resume. Our Advancement Coordinator has most of the necessary information. Work together to fill out the application. Get the necessary signatures.

Your entire package, including your service project binder, letters of recommendation, statement of life purpose, and application form, MUST be received at Council Office BEFORE your 18th birthday. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.
