Boy Scout service hour requirements will soon increase in a series of BSA program updates beginning Jan. 1, 2016.
Starting next year, a boy on the path from Scout to Eagle Scout will need to complete a total of 18 service hours. The increase is not large, but make sure you are up to date on your current rank’s requirements! You could see:
- An increase in hour requirements (Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class)
- A change in the type of service required (Life)
- No change in hour requirements (Star, Eagle Scout Project)
Scouts now have an even greater opportunity to show how they live the Scout Oath by “helping other people at all times.”
