10 Eagle Service Project Workbook Completing the WorkbookUsing the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook, the candidate must select his Eagle service project and have the project proposal approved by his unit leader, his unit committee, and the benefactor of the project, and reviewed and approved by the District Advancement Committee.
11 Eagle Service Project Workbook While working toward completion of the Eagle Scoutservice project, especially during the proposal approvalprocess, a candidate has the right to expect the following:11
12 Eagle Service Project Workbook Questioning and probing for his understanding of theproject, the proposal, and what must be done, shallbe conducted in a helpful, friendly, courteous, andkind-hearted manner. We will respect the Scout’sdignity. He will be allowed, if he chooses, to havea parent, unit leader, or other adult present as anobserver at any time he is discussing his proposalor project with someone who is reviewing it.12
13 Eagle Service Project Workbook Project expectations will match Eagle Scoutrequirement 5, and we will not require proposalsto include more than described in the Eagle ScoutService Project Workbook.13
14 Eagle Service Project Workbook If requested by the Scout or his parent or guardian,an explanation of a proposal rejection will beprovided in writing, with a copy sent to the counciladvancement chair and staff advisor.

20 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalFor my project, I will supervise the collection and organization of school supplies for the 420 students at Ivey Lane Elementary. Based on the requests from the faculty and staff at Ivey Lane, I will provide single subject spiral notebooks, pencils, scissors, glue sticks, and crayons for the students…
21 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project Proposal…These students are in need of basic school supplies such as paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue. Some reasons why the students need new supplies is they live in an extremely high poverty area with 85% of the students coming from single parent homes with most of those parents being unemployed….
22 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project Proposal… It is my intent to have my project completed by the last week of July, 20xx in order for the children to begin school on August 7, 20xx with their brand new school supplies…
23 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalHow many people? Pick a number, it is not etched in stone.Where will you get them? Your troop, your family, other scout units. Again, it is not etched in stone.What do you think will be most difficult?

27 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalThe idea here is to arrive at an ESTIMATED cost for materials, supplies, tools, other expenses and an ESTIMATED TOTAL of all costs. You may have to do something like what follows to arrive at the category and total totals but only the final costs need to be provided in the work-book.ItemAmount NeededEstimated Price Per ItemTotal PriceTotal Category CostTotal Project CostSingle Subject Spiral Notebooks820$0.50$410$1148 (materials)$1170Glue Sticks$0.25$205Scissors240$1$240Crayons170$170Pencils2460$0.05$123Sandwich Bags6 boxes$2$12 $22 (supplies)Colored Dot Stickers5 pks.$10Let’s assume for our project that we’ve got 85 kindergarteners and 85 first graders (170). Then we’ve got 60 each in grades two (2) through five (5) (240). That’s a total of 410 students. If we want all 410 students in K through 5th grade to have two (2) single subject spiral notebooks and two (2) glue sticks, that’s 820 of each of those materials needed. If we only want students in 2nd through 5th grade to have scissors, that’s 240 of that material needed. If we only want students in K through 1st grade to have crayons, that’s 170 of that material needed. And finally, if we want all 410 students in K through 5th grade to have six (6) pencils, that’s 2460 of that material needed. For supplies, we estimate that six (6) boxes of plastic sandwich baggies and five (5) packages of colored dot stickers will be sufficient.
28 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalI plan to raise money by holding a fundraising event at the Beef O’Brady’s in Waterford Lakes Mall. I selected Beef’s because they allow people to do fundraisers there, and will donate a portion of the money they make to the organization. I also plan to do a car wash at my Temple.For the Beef O’Brady’s fundraiser, I will put up posters in local stores and put an advertisement in my community newsletter. I will also send out an with the fundraiser information to all my friends and their parents who live in Orlando and ask that they send it to their friends as well.
29 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalPlan Schedule for Beef O’ Brady’s nightPlan Schedule for car washPlan Schedule for purchase and delivery of hats, booties, and blankets
30 Eagle Service Project Workbook Preparing the Project ProposalClothing and blankets will be purchased with the money I raise. I will buy them from BabiesRUs, an online store (www.BabiesRUs.com). I have also contacted friends and relatives who were interested in helping but can’t participate in the fund-raising events. They will be knitting hats and booties for me. The yarn they will use to knit the hats and booties is being donated. I will count the hours spent knitting in my project total.Once the clothing has been purchased and donated hats and booties received, I will fly to Tacoma, Washington to visit MAMC (accompanied by my dad), to deliver the materials I have collected for the premature babies. Prior to my trip, I will be coordinating with the MAMC NICU and Commanding Officer. The delivery of these items will signal the successful completion of this project. The trip to MAMC will be done as part of my family’s summer vacation.

40 Eagle Service Project Workbook The Final PlanThe current condition of the boardwalk is unsafe for any sort of consistent use. The section in question has been rotted and can scarcely stand the stress of someone walking upon it. The plant life around the boardwalk has also overgrown onto it and will need to be trimmed away to look presentable, and to prevent any snagging from thorns or briers…

Additionally, the Orlando Magic and Avalon Publix donated some materials. So, instead of 820 single subject spiral notebooks, we only need 752 since sheet packets of notebook paper were provided, instead of 820 glue sticks, we only need 780 since 40 4 oz bottles of glue were provided, and instead of 2460 pencils, we only need 1596 since 864 were provided. Furthermore, we were able to find scissors at a great discount ($0.49 instead of $1 estimated), crayons at a small reduction in price ($0.92 instead of $1 estimated), and pencils too at a small reduction in price ($0.04 instead of $0.05 estimated). So, our total materials cost is $ versus the $1148 estimated total materials cost.
