I just had to toss my two cents into this discussion.
Remember, the advancement program through first class is
designed so that advancement should come naturally as
part of the program of the troop. If a troop has a good
outdoor program where the boys are learning and doing,
it's a snap for a boy to complete the requirements in
less than one year.
There shouldn't be a need to set up special "advancement"
classes or activities to hurry these boys along.
If you have a good program which emphasizes the patrol
method and youth leadership in the outdoors, you will
have strong first class scouts, strong Eagles, and
boys who are having a ton of fun while building their
character for the future.
