The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service.

Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank. In fact, only 4 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. More than 1.2 million Boy Scouts have earned the rank since 1911, and they make up only 0.512% of the U.S. male population. Eagle Scouts are a special breed!

This page is dedicated to the youth who strive to become a part of the small percent of young men who reach Scouting’s highest achievement.

Getting Started

Congratulations! You’ve earned the Life Scout rank and are ready to begin your Eagle Scout Service Project. Before you take the first step, carefully read the information on this page and print the documents and materials you’ll need.

If you already know what you’re Eagle Service Project is going to be, that’s great!

Starting Your Eagle Project

To meet National Boy Scout requirements, you must have your Eagle Scout Service Project Proposal approved by an Eagle Project Counselor before you begin your work. Click here for a listing of approved Eagle Project Counselors or ask your unit leader for a reference.

You must use an Eagle Service Project Counselor in current standing from the approved list. There are no other approved counselors.
