Scouting Opportunities


Eagle Scout Projects

Eagle Scout Service Projects can be a huge benefit to our organization and allow us to expand our ability to serve the community.  If you are interested in working with Community Action for your project, please follow the following steps:

  • Contact the Volunteer Coordinator ( to get an idea of Community Action’s current needs.
  • Pick a need and design a project.
  • Write up your project proposal (pages 6-10 in the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook).
  • Arrange a time to meet with the Volunteer Coordinator to review your proposal, answer any additional questions, and receive a signature.  This meeting should not be arranged until after the project proposal is completed.
  • After completion of the project, you will need to meet with the Volunteer Coordinator once more to review your work and receive your final signature.

For additional questions or to schedule an appointment, please call the Volunteer Coordinator at Allow a 48 hour response window. Download the Eagle Scout Packet.

Important Notes

  • Planning a project takes time. Please “always be prepared” and plan ahead of time to schedule meetings with the Volunteer Coordinator
  • It is the responsibility of the potential Eagle Scout to contact and coordinate with the Volunteer Coordinator to organize a project, not a parent.
  • Any use of our logo for fliers or handouts must be approved before printing.
