In reference to Eagle Projects: Assisting another Scout with his Eagle project is something that all scouts need to participate in repeatedly. This is not a “did it one time” or “once-a-year” thing. If a Scout does not have a prior committment, they should make every effort to attend. For those who stay focused in scouting and continue on toward Eagle, at some point in the future, they will look to other scouts for help with their Eagle project - there is no better way to learn to lead than being lead. Experience is the best teacher. Although the days usually involve physical labor, they are always good-hearted fun among the boys and they always benefit a community cause.
