Trail to Eagle
Trail to Eagle Resources
The Goose Creek District Advancement Committee prepared several supplementary sets of information on achieving Eagle Scout Rank helpful to Life Scouts, unit leaders, and parents. These materials were provided on CD-ROMs to unit leaders, and they will be kept current on this website.
“Guidelines and Helpful Hints for Eagle Scout Candidates”
Everything a Life Scout needs to know about how to achieve Eagle Scout Rank is in this booklet. The District Committee encourages units to present each Life Scout with a hard copy of this publication at the time the Scout completes his Board of Review for Life Scout.
Scouts will find instructions on what is required to complete Eagle Scout Rank, hints and suggestions about Leadership Service Projects, links to web resources, and the Application for Eagle Scout Rank.
Leaders will find various check lists used by the Advancement Committee and the Eagle Board of Review to ensure all the materials needed by various approval levels are in the proper order and appearance. Leaders should especially review the last half of Section 4 concerning unit leader responsibilities in conducting an Eagle Board of Review.
The current edition is Revision 1, dated June 2004.

“Trail to Eagle” PowerPoint Presentation
The District Committee requested the Advancement Committee develop a presentation to be shown to units to encourage Scouts to earn the Eagle Scout Rank. The show was shown first in January 2005. Copies were provided to each unit on CD-ROMs in February.
A 30-minute presentation shown by the Advancement Committee chairman is available upon request by unit leaders. Contact the chairman to book an appointment. The CD-ROM has all the materials on it for units to make their own presentation, including the script.

District Advancement Committee - "Eagle Board"
Members of the District Advancement Committee are geographically dispersed within the district to ensure Scouts do not have to travel far to contact one to discuss and approve their Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project. If you need assistance contacting a member, contact the Advancement Committee chairman.
