Service projects that count toward rank advancement include Eagle Projects and those listed below. Be sure to get approval from your Scoutmaster before taking part in one of these service opportunities.
NOTE: Luminaries do not count toward rank advancement service hours as they are a fundraiser for the Troop.
Keep track of your service hours in the back of your Scout Handbook and also have your volunteer service project supervisor sign this Service Hours Log form. You must have a log and form for all service hours performed for rank advancement.
Service Hours cannot be double counted toward both rank and merit badge requirements. That is, hours used for rank advancement cannot also be used for a Merit Badge. Which also means that hours used for a Merit Badge cannot be used for rank advancement.
