Eagle Scout Coach

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOURSELF, and SIGN UP FOR AN EAGLE COACH

Scouts should begin working with a district-appointed Eagle coach soon after achieving the rank of Life Scout. Only a district-appointed coach meets the requirements of an Eagle Scout Service Project Coach outlined in Guide to Advancement, section 9.0.2.9. Scouts should contact a district-appointed coach at least one week before seeking district approval.

Eagle Scout Service Project

Perhaps the most well-known requirement for advancement to Eagle is the service project. Scouts should only use the current workbook, available at Eagle Workbook Procedures. Policies regarding the service project are found in the workbook and in Guide to Advancement, section 9.0.2.

A Scout obtains district approval before beginning actual work on an Eagle project.
