Life to Eagle Training
Please join us at the Volunteer Service Service April 27th from 9am-noon in the Coward Room to learn more about the Life to Eagle process. Topics include the Eagle Scout Service Project, what it means to be active, positions of responsibility, references, the application process, and the board of review. We will also cover what to do when the unforeseen happens (extensions, appeals). This training is intended for advancement administrators - adults who have a role in managing advancement at the troop or district level or who work with Scouts on this process.
