The merit badge counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a merit badge counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a merit badge counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.
Eagle Scout Projects are the culminating event for a Scout who is trying to achieve the highest rank in the Scouting program. Donations of time, talent, materials, and resources are always needed. The Eagle Project is generally completed in the area where the scout lives and is active and local resources are always appreciated.
