6 REVIEW THE EAGLE PROJECT WORKBOOK There are no required minimum hours for a project. No one may tell you how many hours must be spent on itRoutine labor is not normally appropriate for a project. This might be defined as a job or service you may provide as part of your daily life, or a routine maintenance job normally done by the beneficiary (for example, pulling weeds on the football field at your school)While projects may not be of a commercial nature or for a business, this is not meant to disallow work for community. Institutions, such as museums and service agencies (like homes for the elderly, for example), that would otherwise be acceptable. Some aspect of a business operation provided as a community service may also be considered; for example, a park open to the public that happens to be owned by a business, but primarily benefits the communityA project may not be a fundraiser. In other words, it may not be an effort that primarily collects money, even for a worthy charity. Fundraising is permitted only for securing materials and facilitating a project, and it may need to be approved by your council. See “Eagle Scout Service Project Fundraising Application” in the Eagle Project workbookNo more than one Eagle Scout candidate may receive credit for working on the same Eagle Scout service projectProjects must not be performed for the Boy Scouts of America, or its councils, districts, units, or propertiesREVIEW THE EAGLE PROJECT WORKBOOK
