Lessons Learned from Eagle Project Proposal Approval

Post date: Apr 14, 2017 4:15:11 PM

On April 22 (Earth Day) at 9:00 am, I (Nikolas O) plan to start my Eagle project at the Lifting Up Westchester building, having received approval for my Eagle Project Proposal. There have been many lessons that I have learned from the Eagle Project Proposal approval process. First, I learned that scouts should read the comments and carefully and address each one. Secondly, I learned that scouts should update the Project Proposal everywhere that the comment(s) are applicable. The comment(s) are usually applicable in many places within the Project Proposal. Thirdly, I learned that scouts must be clear and concise in stating how they plan to fundraise within the Project Proposal. For my project, we will refurbish the areas in front of the entrance and in front of one side of the Lifting Up Westchester building. The Lifting Up Westchester building houses an organization that does charitable work for Westchester County, including helping the homeless.
