Being Recommended for the highest rank in the Boy Scouts Of America is every dedicated Boy Scouts dream. Being an Eagle Scout is a testament of months or years of dedication and display of the scouting spirit, and demonstration of leadership. The Eagle Scout is the highest achievement or attainable rank in the Boys Scouting Movement across the globe. For more than 100 years, it has been awarded to scouts who had demonstrated exceptional leadership and exemplary display of the scouting spirit. Only a handful of scouts achieved and carried the eagle scout rank since 1912. The Eagle Scout is the embodiment of the Scout Law and the Scout Oath, and their commitment to serve God, their Country, and their Family.

How To Be An Eagle Scout

To be an Eagle Scout is no easy feat. Aspiring Eagle Scouts must meet a set of qualifications and requirements to be eligible for the rank. Below are the steps that detail the journey that scouts must undertake to be an Eagle Scout.

Step 1. Serve As a Life Scout

An aspiring Eagle Scout must serve as a Life Scout for six months. As a Life Scout, they must actively serve as a leader in a Scout Troop and a Venturing Crew, or, as a Lone Scout performing civic duties outside the scouting community. This is the phase where a Scout displays leadership expected of a scout leader and how it’s like living by the spirit of scouting.

Step 2. Earn the Required Merit Badges

There are 21 merit badges that a scout must earn before becoming an Eagle Scout. 13 badges are required for the Eagle Rank in addition to the ten required for the Life rank. These include First Aid, Citizenship in the World, Citizenship in the Nation, Citizenship in the Community, Cooking, Communication, Personal Fitness, Camping, Family Life, Swimming, Life-Saving, Environmental Science and Personal Management.

Step 3. Accomplish a Service Project

A Service Project is required to be accomplished in order to be qualified for the Eagle rank. The aspiring candidate must first draft a project proposal that must be approved by the Scout Master and the Organization that would benefit it. Implementation and completion of the project must be accomplished after the approval of the proposal. It is also in this phase that leadership skills are demonstrated by the Scout by enlisting and efficiently delegating tasks to volunteers.

Step 4. Participate in The Scout Master Conference

The Scout Master Conference is a conference between the scout and the scoutmaster. It is during this time that your performance in your troop, goals, and ambitions are discussed. This is the time where the scout evaluation happens if they’re ready to advance to the rank of an Eagle Scout before the Board Review.

Step 5.  Get Reviewed by The Eagle Board Of Review

The final step in achieving the Eagle rank is by getting reviewed by the Eagle Board Of Review. The Eagle Board Of Review is a committee that evaluates the Scout’s attitude, accomplishments, and acceptance of the scouting ideals. It is during this phase where it is determined if the scout is worthy of the rank.
