STEP ONE

PLAN, DEVELOP AND GIVE LEADERSHIP TO OTHERS IN A SERVICE PROJECT HELPFUL TO ANY RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION, SCHOOL OR YOUR COMMUNITY

rules
Rules
  • Milton District believes that a scout’s project is his thought and his love and we will Endeavour to make it an approvable project

SO LONG AS CERTAIN CRITERIA ARE MET

slide6
1) Must not create financial profit for a commercial entity or be of a commercial nature. Not solely for a business or individual’s gain

Example

  • A Scout wants to build a gazebo with garden for a Nursing Home so the residents have a nice place to sit---That is OK but if the Nursing home plans to rent it out for weddings etc then it is not OK
slide7
2) Not a Routine Labor project

Example

Organization wants help and gives the scout the plans, the check and says make it happen

The scout must be a part of the planning and the fund raising.

slide8
3) Not on Council property or part of a BSA Activity or Property

Can not do Eagle Projects on the Scout Camps or Visitors Service Center.

Remember this is a COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT So municipal parks are acceptable sites

slide9
4) Not for a direct gain for the Scout Unit

Building a Scout Hut or improving a Scout hut is not acceptable.

Building a nature trail at your sponsoring organization’s place that scouts as well as others may use is acceptable

slide10
4) Must not be a fund raiser in itself—must have a purpose for the fund raiser

Example:

Buying a defibrillator is not acceptable, but

buying a defibrillator and then teaching CPR

classes to certify people in its use is

allowable—

slide11
5) It can not be an extension of an existing Eagle project Nor can two prospective Eagle Scout candidates work on the same project
the key requirement
The Key Requirement

The Scout must show

LEADERSHIP

Think of the project as a Troop Project and the Eagle Scout as the SPL of the Project

Not the Patrol Leader of the Project

the proposal
The Proposal

The Eagle Scout Candidate must write a proposal of his service project:

The best way to determine if you have included enough information in the proposal write up is:

Is this proposal complete enough that another Scout would be able to use it to do your project from beginning to end exactly or better than you would do it without your being present!

use the eagle scout workbook
Use the Eagle Scout Workbook
  • This workbook and a guide to the workbook is found on the Milton District Web Site: www.miltonbsa.org

Under programs heading—then under Advancement then under Eagle’s Nest

There are many forms of the Eagle Scout Booklet—USE ONLY THE ONE ON THE MILTON WEB SITE!!

step by step instructions
Step-by-step instructions

Very specific so anybody can build it equal or better than you-- just by reading your project proposal.

first step
First Step
  • First step is usually fundraising

You might briefly state your fundraising but refer to fundraising section where Financial Discussion belongs

second step
Second Step

Procure materials, supplies and tools

How and who

model airplane approach
Model Airplane Approach
  • When you build a model airplane are the instructions one sheet a paper with a bunch of steps

OR

  • Is there some instructions with a diagram specific to those instructions and then some more instructions with a diagram specific to those instructions
slide40
Assembly
  • Use diagrams 4 and 3.
  • Constructing the cello rack
  • Use the drawn instructions at the beginning of the step-by-step instructions for where to drill holes and put screws.
  • Gather materials.
  • Five 6”x 12”
  • Three 6”x 72”
  • One plywood 6”x 72”
  • Two 6”x 36”
  • Two small plywood sides
  • Place two (2) 6”x 72” parallel to each other
  • Place one (1) 6”x 12” in between on each side of the two boards. Mark and drill holes using the hand drill; screw boards in place one side at a time. Use the metal angle to keep the boards at right angles. This should create a rectangle.
  • Measure and mark the places for the three remaining 6”x 12” boards to be placed. They should be placed 15.5” apart. Mark, drill holes, and screw.
  • Hold in place two (2) 6”x 36” and mark and drill holes on one side of each board. Hold the ends of the two boards vertical to the ends of the base structure already built. Check to be sure it is level and screw together.
  • Hold in place the 6”x 72” and mark and drill holes on both ends. Hold behind and perpendicular to the two 6”x 36” boards, check to make sure that the boards are at right angles with a metal angle and screw into place.
  • Hold in place one (1) small plywood side and mark and drill holes. Be careful not to line holes up with any existing screws. Make sure the plywood side is flush with the rack and screw in place.
  • Repeat step G for the other side.
  • Hold in place the plywood 6”x 72” and mark and drill holes on the straight side. Make sure that the holes only line up with the 6”x 72” board. Hold the plywood in place and screw in place.
slide42
Cutting Wood
  • On the 48”x 96” ply wood measure and cut five (4) major sections using diagram 1
  • 6”x 96”
  • 6”x 96”
  • 36”x 36”
  • 36”x 60”
  • Put one (1) 6”x 96” aside
  • On the other 6”x 96” measure 72” and cut. Put the 6”x 72” aside and discard the 6”x 24”
  • On the 36”x 36”, measure and cut it into two (2) 18”x 36” sections
  • Using diagram 4, measure 2” on the 18” side and 6” on the opposite 36” side. Using the chalk line, connect the two measurements making a 34” long diagonal line and cut.
  • Repeat step D on the other 18”x 36”
  • On the 36”x 60” using the chalk line divide it diagonally and cut. This should create two (2) 36”x 60”x 70” right triangles.
  • Using diagram 5 and measure the triangle into five sides. Look at diagram 1 for the positions of each measurement. From the right angle measure 30” and 54”. From the 54” mark measure 2” across using the metal 90-degree angle. From the 30” mark measure 6” across using the metal 90-degree angle. Using the chalk line, connect the 2” and the 6” mark. Once all measurements are checked with diagram 1 and 5, cut.
  • Repeat step G on the other triangle.
  • After all of these steps are completed there should be a 6”x 96” , 6”x 72” , two cello sides, and two bass sides.
slide43
Using diagram 2 measure and cut the 2”x 6”x 8ft lumber.
  • Board 1: measure two (2) 36” sections and one (1) 24” section and cut.
  • Board 2: measure one (1) 72” section and cut. Save the 24” section.
  • Board 3: measure one (1) 72” section and cut. Save the 24” section.
  • Board 4: measure one (1) 72” section and cut. Save the 24” section.
  • Board 5: measure five (5) 12” sections and one (1) 24” section and cut. Discard extra board.
  • Board 6: measure one (1) 54” and cut. Discard extra board.
  • Board 7: measure one (1) 54” and cut. Discard extra board.
  • Boards 8, 9, 10: make no cuts.
slide44
Using diagram 3, on one side of the 6”x 72” plywood, measure and cut.
  • From end point R measure 8.25”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • From point R measure 25.75”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • From point R measure 43.25”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • From point R measure 60.75”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • Cut all four (4) of the 3”x 3” squares out.
  • Using diagram 3, on one side of the 6”x 96” plywood, measure and cut.
  • From end point R measure 11.25”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • From point R measure 34.75”
  • Using the metal angle, measure down 3”, over 3”, and up 3”. This should create a 3”x 3” square.
  • From point R measure 58.25”

obvious pit falls
Obvious pit falls
  • Include what it should look like when finished
  • Diagrams showing the location that objects will be located at when finished
  • Finishing---sanding, painting, sealing
  • Anchoring or securing or cementing
  • If power tools used make sure to CLEARLY state, who measures the item, who marks the item and who operates the power tool
slide50
Don’t forget set up
  • Don’t forget orient crew leaders
  • Don’t Forget cleanup
financial plan
Financial Plan

You have the total cost from materials, Supplies, Tools---now how do you finance it.

first things first
First things first

Need to show on the proposal the finances

First part should be the following

Cost of materials/supplies/tools $________

Value of donated items (minus) $________

Amount needing to be fund raised$______

(don’t forget tax)

It’s a good idea to have extra money for unforeseen issues that will arise.

slide53
Don’t forget many fund raising adventures have a cost to them (materials, supplies and sometimes tools) and that needs to be included in the proposal cost statements
slide55
1) Ask the sponsoring organization for funding
  • Wear your uniform make an appointment
  • Best to bring a letter requesting money (list amount and or specific item donations), a copy of your proposal, a presentation material, a copy of the Unit (via Sponsoring Organization) IRS 401 (c)
slide56
2) Do a fund raiser

Examples: Car Wash (when no draught)

Bowlathon, dinner, yard service, baby sitting service, garage sale, sell candy bars, movie night, Vacuum out, Concert

Sky’s the limit on imagination

NO RAFFLES, BINGO, Gambling

slide57
3) You can solicit funds from the community, by personnel requests either by a table at the Church, School, Grocery Store etc

Door to door in the community

Letter writing campaign

slide58
If you write letters to send out requesting donations, copies must be in your proposal, referenced to in the text and placed in the proposal as an attachment with a title and Label (e.g. attachment L fund raising letter)
you must show where your funding is coming from
You must show where your funding is coming from:

If it is one source then state that source. If this source has nothing to do with the project then an explanation as to why they are donating is required

If it is from multiple sources than a ledger or statement of donations needs to be included IN THE PROPOSAL

NOTE: The Ledger must be FILLED OUT COMPLETELY and included in the final report.

slide61
Who keeps the ledger?

Rather than I do---

Project treasurer best person

checks
Checks
  • Who do checks get made out to:
  • Eagle Scout
  • Eagle Scout Family
  • Unit
  • Sponsor of Unit.
  • Separate Fund
slide63
Don’t forget to use the users of the project as a source of contribution letters rather than hitting up the troop or your neighbors

Fixing a playschool playground the parents whose children are a better source of revenue than your troop or neighbors who don’t care about this particular Pre-School

receipts
Receipts

Many donor would like a receipt for taxes.

Include a copy as an attachment with proposal

who can t donate
Who can’t donate
  • Funds from illegal activities, including gambling or BINGO
  • Funds from alcohol, smoking or drugs

Organizations that run against the principles of scouting are not good sources, e.g. Loveshack

family donations
Family Donations
  • It was decided by the Milton District Advancement Committee that Scouts and their families (any relation from parent to 53rd removed cousin):

may contribute up to 25% of the total gross cost of the project.

slide67
Baby sitting or lawn service other earned money by the eagle scout candidate can only be used in the family 25% limit rule

However if the scout creates a service that uses other workers (Lawn service or babysitting service) where the money earned goes toward an eagle project rather than paying the workers; any of this money may be used no limit.

slide68
It is acceptable for you or your family to pay for snacks, lunch or refreshments or bottled water, under the scout is courteous rule, in addition to the 25% rule
what is plan b
What is plan B

What do you do if your fundraising idea is not good enough to fund the project.

Do you have another idea or do you keep doing this fund raiser until you have enough

overage
Overage

What do you do with excess monies?

Usually you give it to the sponsor you are helping.

If it is another organization explain why? Why the organization you are helping is not good enough for the extra money

Make sure sources of income know that extra money goes to a different place than the project recipient.

it is better to be ahead of schedule than to explain why you were behind on schedule
It is better to be ahead of schedule than to explain why you were behind on schedule
  • Remember to include extra days if necessary to finish the project. If you think you will need only 1 day of fundraising and 2 work days; schedule for 2 fund raising days and 3 work days. This way if you need the extra time you are not behind on the schedule and then need to explain it as a variance to your project (end of project descriptions).
  • Also this allows for inclimate weather.

tracking volunteers
Tracking Volunteers

How will you keep track of the time people volunteer for your project

Log sheet for volunteers with sign in and sign out time Include as an attachment

Use this attachment in final writeup

adult supervision
Adult Supervision
  • Minimum of two adults AT ALL TIMES
  • At least ONE of the adults MUST be Youth Protection Trained.
adult leaders
Adult Leaders?

You do not have to have adult leaders.

In fact if you state you will have adult leaders and one of them can not attend the project because of work or illness you need to find another leader or you must explain a variance in the final write up. With that in mind state two adults and if you happen to get leaders to volunteer all the better for you.

named ones
Named Ones

If you name a specific individual will attend then that person needs to attend. If they can not due to illness or work you either have to postpone your project or do the project but the project now has a variance that needs to be explained in the final write-up

keep it simple
KEEP IT SIMPLE!

Just state:

“There will always be at least two adults present at all times during the project

At least one of these adults will be BSA Youth Protection Trained

work site
Work Site

List all sites the project will take place at:

Work houses, project sites, fund raising sites

properly list the places
Properly list the Places

Work site 1:

Kopel Residence (not my house)

5315 Skidaway Drive Alpharetta GA 30022

Make reference to map(s)

Work Site 2:

ETC.

slide98
Key

Do not use specific written directions from a specific place.

Think of it this way:

If some one from National BSA was coming to see this project will these maps be enough (with a general Atlanta area map) to find the site.

this one
This one?

Too Much Zoom

this one1
This one?

Not zoomed enough

transportation
Transportation

Best way to state it---and you may plagiarize this line:

“For all helpers under the age of eighteen, transportation to and from the work sites will be the responsibility of the Scout’s, or helper’s (if not a scout) parent or guardian or as arranged by his/her parent or guardian. All volunteers over the age of 18 will be responsible for their own transportation”

material transport
Material Transport

How are materials or project parts going to be transported to the work sites

Truck, Suburban, Mini Van, 20 cars, Trailer etc

Sherpas and pack mules are acceptable

Attachment D: Letter for money donations

Dear First Last Name,

I hope your year is going great. I have been extremely busy preparing my Eagle project. To achieve the rank of Eagle Scout, which is the highest rank in Boy Scouts, you must earn twenty-one or more merit badges, along with other difficult and challenging achievements. Although these achievements are very important for the rank of Eagle Scout, the dominant and most important qualification is to carry out a project worthy enough to be considered an Eagle project. My project will consist of building three high quality benches for my school, Providence Christian Academy. They would be placed on the walkway next to “the Green” an area between the High School and Elementary buildings, and would serve a practical purpose for students and staff. Also they would serve to add curb appeal for the school. The benches will be made from wrought iron, and the brick planters will act as legs.

Part of the Eagle project is raising enough money to build your project. The money raised will be used for the following materials: brick, sand, block, mortar, rebar, and concrete, along with the custom built wrought iron benches. Money will also be needed to pay for the masons who will assist me in the building of the benches. If you would like to help me accomplish my Eagle Scout project and reach the highly distinguished rank of Eagle, you may donate money at this time. Any donation would be much appreciated. Checks can be made payable to Troop 143 – Alex Allison’s Eagle Project, and they are tax deductible. I hope you will be pleased with the outcome of my Eagle project, and I thank you for the part your family plays in my Eagle Scout project.

Sincerely,

Joe Scout Eagle Scout Candidate Troop 1
