Eagle Scout Requirement 5: While a Life Scout, plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to any religious institution, any school, or your community. The project idea must be approved by your Scoutmaster and troop committee and by the council or district before you start. You must use the Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project Workbook, No. 512-927, in meeting this requirement.


Selecting a project -- Guidelines and ideas from other Scouts. More (including web links) are available in the planning guides below.

Documenting -- What should you have written down before you start? How about after you're done? How about during?

Getting approvals -- Ideas plus a checklist to ensure you are ready for the approval phase.

Eagle Project Planning Guide -- an excellent work written by Randy Smith (used here with his permission).

Guidelines for earning the Eagle rank -- A great compilation of information from Joe Sinniger (provided with his permission) which is under the section called "the Path." It has a lot of good Eagle project information.

The Final Report -- Guidelines to help you. Be creative and do more than we discuss here!
