This is an long-time cry of the leaders in Boy Scouting -- not enough
positions. As a national volunteer trainer for over 20 years, I have
heard it often. However, projects are not leadership positions, as
defined for rank advancement. They are very specific, and quite
enough, if the troop works on the patrol method, and holds the every 6
month elections that is supposed to be held per the program.
Senior Patrol Leader
Asst. Senior Patrol Leader
Asst. Patrol Leader
Any of the Varsity and/or Venture postions
All revolved at least once a year -- tends to bring in those scouts
who need leadership position for advancement in rank.
Check your Scoutmaster's handbook -- take a look at the Troop Leader
Training video training, and you will find there are enough. However,
EVERY scout can not hold a leadership position, but than --- not EVERY
scout should be an Eagle ---
Hope this helps.
