If you ask most Eagle Scouts they will say that the most rewarding part of their journey toward Eagle was their Eagle Scout Service Project.
It is a chance to put all of one’s Scouting training into practice in a BIG WAY!
Not only will you be helping others, but you may even have the chance to put together a project that will last for many generations.
Unfortunately, project ideas don’t always present themselves so clearly. That makes Requirement 5 the task that slows down more aspiring Eagles than any other. Type your paragraph here.
People who have earned the Eagle Scout Award count it among their most treasured possessions.
Those who missed it by a whisker remember exactly which requirement they didn’t complete.
If you clicked this page, then you are probably considering becoming an Eagle Scout and perhaps, you need to ask a leader and they will gladly put you on the right track due to most of our leaders are Eagle Scouts themselves.
Here is a small video of what Eagle meant to these people:

The Eagle Project- Final step can be completed
Here are some Eagle Scout project ideas from the National Eagle Scout Association website.
My son in Troop 581 collected 5,000 shoes for the Haitian people in the January 2010 earthquake. He collaborated with Soles 4 Souls to send forth the shoes for shipment. (J.R.)
Planters designed and built for a Center for the Blind. Filled with plants that could be identified by touch or scent — labeled in English and Braille. (M.J.)
A Scout from Troop 123 in Shawnee, Kan., designed and set up a program at the National World War I Museum where Scouts were trained and used as tour facilitators on weekends for groups visiting the museum. (T.J.)
One boy in our troop built shelving for a charity thrift storein the community. (H.S.)
My Eagle Scout project was to build a playground structurefor the town of Foxboro, Mass. It was seen as over-ambitious back then, but now when I go back there with my kids (who are Scouts) and they look up and see what they can achieve it was all worth it. (D.F.)
My son is building a dog parkfor our community. (L.B.)
A Scout from Troop 357 in Dodgeville, Wis., worked with his church to design and build a outdoor altar for the parish in the church’s cemetery so the congregation can have outdoor mass on occasions like Memorial Day. (J.L.)
On the heels of the 2008 economic downturn, my oldest son put on a free weeklong football camp for 120 kids of low-income parents. (M.K.)
In Troop 337 there are two major goals in our Scouting program.
1) The Scouts should have fun while they learn the way of a Boy Scout.
2) Earn the rank of Eagle Scout before reaching their 18th birthday.
While learning new life skills, making friends and having fun, every Scout has their eye on the ultimate goal, that of Eagle Scout. And, it's not an easy one, but one that's long and challenging. On average, only 5% of all Scouts will ever achieve it.
With that, Troop 337 is very proud to have had over 100 Scouts earn Scouting's highest rank over the past 60 years - with 41 Scouts having reached this milestone since 2011. At Troop 337, making Eagle is not a requirement, but our Scouts have come to expect it for themselves and each other.
Being an Eagle Scout is important because it requires immense hard work, dedication, and service to others. It gives teens something to strive for and instills confidence, leadership, and a commitment to the community. These skills carry into college, career, and adult life. It is an accomplishment which stays with the Scout for the rest of their life. Once an Eagle Scout, Always an Eagle Scout.
