Congratulations upon earning your Life rank; you have completed an important milestone on your Trail to Eagle.
With continued diligent effort and perseverance you can earn your Eagle rank becoming one of the four-percent of Boy Scouts nationally that achieve this distinguished accomplishment. Your remaining requirements include earning your remaining Eagle-required and elective Merit Badges for a total of 21, your unit leadership position for six months, your Eagle Scout Service Project and your Unit leadership conferences. These need to be completed before your eighteenth birthday, so do not delay or procrastinate, stay focused and establish your time management program to finish the Trail to Eagle.
To aid you in developing your Eagle Scout Service Project Proposal, the Boy Scouts of America National Office provides the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook (Publication # 512-927) on-line at http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/512-927_fillable.pdf. Your Project Proposal must be approved by your Beneficiary Sponsor, Unit Advancement team and Scoutmaster, and a District representative prior to beginning work on your project. The Workbook also provides a structure for the detailed planning, execution, leadership and reporting of your Eagle Scout Service Project.
In addition to your Unit Advancement Team, your District Advancement Team stands ready to support and assist you to identify and develop an impactful significant Eagle Rank Service Project.
