Boy Scout Rank Advancement
Boy Scouts uses Advancement as part of its Aims & Methods.
The advancement from Life to Eagle Scout is a big step, with lots of requirements, including the Eagle Project.
Effective January 1, 2017 all Scouts working on Rank Advancements must use the 2017 Rank Advancement, which modifies some of the requirements from the printed manual. You can print this insert and put it in your Scout Handbook.
Boy Scouts is designed to be boy led. As such there are many positions of responsibility available for boys. These leadership roles are needed for rank advancement for Star, Life, and Eagle.
Each year please review A Parents Guide booklet in the front of your Scoutbook with your Scout. This is an important part of the annual Youth Protection Training for Youth. We also recommend that you attend, with your son, the viewing of the video A Time To Tell, which should be offered by your Troop each year.
