Merit Beyond the Badge - Baylor Eagle Study

This may not be a new study, but it was on Facebook today and I thought it was really interesting information. Link to the Scouting.org page: http://www.scouting.org/About/Research/EagleScouts.aspx

The study conducted by Baylor University, Merit Beyond the Badges, found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to:

Have higher levels of planning and preparation skills, be goal-oriented, and network with others
Be in a leadership position at their place of employment or local community
Report having closer relationships with family and friends
Volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations
Donate money to charitable groups
Work with others to improve their neighborhoods

Hopefully this will be some more motivation for Scouts and their families to keep on pushing to Eagle!
