Eagle Project requirement:
>Has anyone else heard of this in your Councils?
The standards used in three Councils in which I have been involved as a
District Rep. have all been the same:
the project must be done for the public or a public service entity, but not
for the Scout Council.
The charter partner will be OK as a benefiting entity if itself a public
service entity (churches, schools, towns, etc.)
The project must be large enough in scope to be impossible for any one
person to do by himself.
The youth must plan the project himself, and hands-on direct its being
It is alright for the Scout to receive suggestions from his pastor or
anyone else, for that matter. What would be wrong would be for the boy to
have been contacted by his pastor and told to do this or else, and this is
how you will do it (i.e. the boy neither chose it, nor directed it).
In the case you hypothesize, the project done for one senior citizen would
not have been approved by me. However, for the boy to set up an on-going
scheme of help for several to many seniors, that will survive his moving
on, and help numbers of senior citizens over several years, I would
approve. For the one senior's home to be worked on a demonstration project,
would be encouraged.
