Ten steps to a successful Eagle project

Step 1:

Read the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook Download a copy of the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook and read it – the whole thing. This is required.

Step 2:

Find a Project Coach Ask one of the adults in your unit to be your Project Coach.

A member of the District Eagle Committee will be available to advise you and your Project Coach as you develop and execute your Eagle project, or to serve as your Project Coach if no one from your unit is available.

Step 3:

Develop your Eagle Project Proposal Working with your Project Coach, identify a suitable project, and complete the Contact Information (p 6), and Project Proposal (pp 7-10) sections of the project workbook (you do not need signatures on p 10 yet). When you and your Project Coach are satisfied that your proposal is ready, go on to step 4.

Step 4:

Submit your Project Proposal to the District Eagle Committee Email your workbook to the Orange District Eagle Committee Chair. (If you can’t conveniently email, contact the Eagle Committee chair to make alternative arrangements.) The Eagle Committee Chair will advise you of any changes or additions required in your proposal – including if you need to complete a Fundraising Application (p 17) or a Tour Plan.

Step 5:

Get approval signatures Sign the Candidate’s Promise on page 10 of the project workbook and get signatures from your unit leader, unit committee, and the project beneficiary.

Step 6:

Meet with the Eagle Committee Chair You and your Project Coach meet with the Eagle Committee Chair to review your progress toward Eagle, and get the district approval signature for your Project Proposal.

Step 7:

Complete the Project Final Plan Working with your Project Coach, plan the details of your project and complete pages 11-16 of the Project Workbook.

Step 8:

Carry out the project following your plan.

Step 9:

Complete the Project Report Sign the Candidate’s Promise on page 20, and get completion approval signatures from the project beneficiary and your unit leader.

Step 10:
