Orange County Council Boy Scouts of America While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, school, or your community. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 44 Start planning as soon as you reach Life You may start planning your Eagle Scout Service Project just as soon after achieving the rank of Life Scout as is practical. All work on your Eagle Scout Service Project must

be undertaken while you are a Life Scout and completed before your eighteenth birthday. See additional policies regarding time extensions (due to no fault of the Scout). Guide to Advancement 9.0.4.0 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 45 1. The Project Must be a project that conforms to the wishes and regulations of those for whom the project is undertaken. Must be where the Eagle Scout demonstrates leadership skills learned in Scouting.

Be done outside the sphere of Scouting (not a Unit function). The Scout must plan the work, organize the personnel needed, and direct the project to completion. Routine labor, a job normally rendered should not be considered. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 46 The Project (continued)

There is NO minimum or maximum number of volunteers or hours of work needed to carry out your Eagle Scout Service Project. Proposal approvals by the recipient, your Unit Leader, Unit Committee and District Representative MUST be obtained IN WRITING before you begin. The Project may not involve Council or BSA properties, may not be performed for a business, may not be of a commercial nature, may not be routine labor or maintenance and may not be for the benefit of an individual. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 47

You must do your own project A candidate may not use his participation in the project of another Eagle candidate to satisfy the Eagle Scout Service Project requirement You may not copy or otherwise share your responsibilities for planning, developing or providing leadership to others Its all about showing LEADERSHIP 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 48 2. Have Measurable Goals

The amount of time spent must be sufficient for the Scout to demonstrate his leadership skills Although the project idea must be approved before work is begun, the Board of Review must determine the manner in which the project was carried out . The following must be answered: In what ways did you demonstrate leadership of others? Give examples of how you directed the project rather than doing the work yourself. In what way did the religious institution, school, or community group benefit from the project? Did the project follow the plan? If changes to the plan were made, explain why the changes were necessary. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council

Advancement Committee 49 3. Plan, Develop, Carry Out You are expected toplan, develop and give leadership to others Determine what kinds and quantities of materials and/or supplies are needed Their costs and how they will be acquired Keep accurate inventory records and a log of work activities Manage the resources and purposefully direct the project to its completion 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council

Advancement Committee 50 A few words about Fund Raising Fund raising is permitted only for the purpose of acquiring the materials and supplies needed to carry out your project. Fundraising is not a requirement. Fundraising must not be a part of the objectives of the project itself. Fund raising must conform to the Guide to Safe Scouting (Tour Permits, parental consent, supervision and most important is safety). 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee

51 What if things go wrong? Even the best planned activities sometimes need change. You will not necessarily be penalized if you had to vary from your plan. On the other hand, if your project did not substantially follow your plan . . . then have you truly demonstrated the leadership skills expected of an Eagle Scout? 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee

52 4. Opportunity to Show Leadership The Board of Review will expect your Eagle Scout Service Project to be helpful and of significance to the beneficiary for whom it is undertaken 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 53 Who can help?

Other Scouts, family, friends and classmates, church members, other youth groups, etc., of any age or type may volunteer; they do not have to be Scouts You should recruit, train, organize and schedule the personnel needed 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 54 What about adult supervision? All Eagle Scout service projects are official Scouting activities and thus are subject to BSA policies and procedures. Projects are

part of a Units program. Proper planning, however, includes preparing for appropriate adult participation and safety concerns. See the Guide to Safe Scouting. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 55 5. A qualified beneficiary Service to others is an important philosophy to the Eagle Scout Service

Project. Therefore, your Eagle Scout Service Project must be done outside of Scouting. Projects can not be done for your Council, Unit or for the District. You can do a project for your Unit Sponsor if it meets other requirements. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 56 5. A qualified beneficiary (continued)

A community organization is defined as just about any group that can supply someone to serve as the beneficiary. Organization can be a not-for-profit charitable 501c(3), but is not required. Can not be for BSA (e.g. Lost Valley, Oso Lake, etc.) 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 57 What your Beneficiary wants Your Eagle Scout Service Project must conform to the wishes of those for whom it

is undertaken. The proposal for your Eagle Scout Service Project must be approved by and a signature obtained from proper official of the beneficiary, before it is submitted to your Unit Leader, Unit Committee and the District Advancement Committee. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 58 Project Coach It is strongly recommended that you obtain the services of a Project Coach to work with you in developing your Eagle

Scout Project Final Plan. The coach can only recommend; not require.

77 Eagle Project Some Examples 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 78 Develop a five mile Trail to benefit Yosemite National Park This example is a worthy project because it is a significant effort, with a

measurable goal and a defined objective that requires thoughtful planning and development, provides an Eagle Scout candidate with an adequate opportunity to provide leadership to others, and is undertaken for a qualified beneficiary. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 79 Develop a new hiking trail at Lost Valley Boy Scout reservation This example is not an acceptable project

because it does not set forth a measurable goal, and is to be performed for an unqualified beneficiary. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 80 Make and install 4 benches and plant 12 different varieties of plants in the courtyard of Oakbrook Elementary School This example is a worthy project because it is a significant effort, with a measurable goal and a defined objective that requires thoughtful planning and development,

provides an Eagle Scout candidate with an adequate opportunity to provide leadership to others, and is undertaken for a qualified beneficiary. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 81 Clean up and remove the trash at Santiago Park This example is not an acceptable project because it is not an extraordinary effort, does not set forth a measurable goal, requires no meaningful planning or

development, and can be performed by an Eagle Scout candidate without any need to give leadership to others. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 82 Tough Situations Some service projects can be worthwhile and beneficial but still not qualify. Replacing a fence for an elderly person at their home is worthy but not acceptable as an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project because it benefits an individual rather than the community.

Some may be tough calls. A blood drive usually lacks the leadership needed for the Eagle Scout project, but it is still possible to qualify under some circumstances. 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council Advancement Committee 83 Having a Problem continued Some examples of Eagle Myths: The Scout can not receive help from his parent The project must involve wood construction Detailed drawings to scale/CAD/3D) must be included Can not involve any volunteers from outside the unit Must include multi-media presentations

The project must be completed within 30 days The project must be completed as the last requirement The project write-up must be done in such a way that any other Scout could complete it The Scout must be 16 years of age before beginning work The project must have a minimum of 200 hours 01/09/12 7:30 PM Orange County Council
