uhh, heck yes you do!Max.Faulkner wrote:Do i have time to make Eagle,
It sounds like merit badges are your one of your biggest issues based off what you've said. I would suggest doing 2 eagle required merit badges at time, and continue to do so until you've got the ones you need.Max.Faulkner wrote:what do i need to do?
Have you asked what other opportunities there are besides that? Also, you'll notice that the hours don't have to be Eagle Scout project hours.Max.Faulkner wrote:The service hours are giving me trouble. I asked my SM if i could volunteer at the elderly home as community service ( without pay of course) he said no because its a for profit organization. Does anybody have ideas for service hours that dosnt involve waiting on someone's eagle project.
Do you volunteer with the pine wood derby for the cub scouts? Is your troop ever active in service projects that don't involve fulfilling the Eagle requirement? If not, why not organize one? Doesn't have to be anything complicated. Just like you said, do the thing with the old folks home. Bring some of your fellow scouts along to do some of it too. Of course, there are many other options too. Just look around your community! There's always plenty to do!national wrote:While a First Class Scout, take part in service projects totaling at least six hours of work. These projects must be approved by your Scoutmaster.

whats the quickest time to go from star to life?
and another thing, when do my merit badges start to count, service hours, ranks etc. When your presented it, or when it is signed off, etc. For example when i get star is it the day i do bor, scoutmaster conference, etc?

I am currently a 1st class scout, i am 15 and turn 16 here on the 17th of December. I am starting to panick a bit because i have realized how much i would regret not becoming eagle my entire life if i dont do it. Heres my situation i am first class, I have the following merit badges. Swimming, Citizenship in the Nation, riflery, horsemanship, space exploration, leatherwork, and wilderness survival. ( Bold= eagle required). I am waiting on personal fitness which i've completed and family life. I have well over 4 months leadership and i am unsure about my service project hours. Do i have time to make Eagle, what do i need to do? The service hours are giving me trouble. I asked my SM if i could volunteer at the elderly home as community service ( without pay of course) he said no because its a for profit organization. Does anybody have ideas for service hours that dosnt involve waiting on someone's eagle project. Its hard to focus, this is putting alot of stress on me all the time now.
Max wrote:Yeah i didnt think that whether or not a elderly home was non-profit or not was particularaly relevant for community service.
If any of you are SM's do you think volunteering at the library would be acceptable community service hours?
