Life to Eagle Packet
Congratulation you have attained YOUR Life rank and now you can begin to work on your Eagle Scout Rank.
Attention Scouts, Leaders, and Parents or Guardians
Eagle Scout rank requirement 5 has been reworded. To support that change, a new Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook has been created. Through Dec. 31, 2011, Scouts have a choice to use either the new workbook or the one it is replacing. Scouts whose Eagle Scout service project has already been approved by the council or district under the former wording of requirement 5—and using the former workbook—should continue with the same workbook. If their project has not yet been approved by the council or district, they may elect to use the revised requirement 5 and the new workbook. Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Eagle Scout candidates—unless they have already submitted a plan for approval by the council or district under the former requirement—will be expected to fulfill the revised service project requirement 5 using the new workbook.

As with our revised and new merit badges that may involve the use of dangerous equipment (such as Welding Merit Badge, for example), the use of a risk-based approach is important. This calls for discussion of the risk or hazards associated with the activity, and how to prevent, mitigate, or address those risks.
