Eagle Project Sources

Remember

“Service projects” & “Work Forces” are NOT Eagle projects.  Just showing up with people to do the work is a “work force”.  Routine labor and/ or maintenance are service projects.  “Just a collection” is not an Eagle Project.  Eagle projects are leadership projects that must be planned and developed by the scout, have leadership opportunities, and provide an impact for the organization you are serving.

If you have a question as to the type of Eagle service project you would like to do, it is best to get it answered before you go to the effort of planning and submitting it for approval.  Seek the advice of a trained Eagle Coach. This is part of proper planning!

 

Local Eagle Project Contacts/Ideas

  • Springville Volunteer Coordinator – Sandy Harward, sharward@springville.org
  • Parks and Recreation Department – Alex Roylance, aroylance@springville.org
  • Springville Art Museum – Natalie Petersen, 801-489-2727 ext. 32
  • Humanitarian Project Ideas – As you are looking at these ideas keep in mind that Eagle Projects must be on a scale large enough and complex enough to provide both planning & development and leadership opportunities for you, and also make a substantial impact on the organization you will be donating to.  You will need to locate a non-profit organization with a need for these projects.
