Community Service

“A service project is a special Good Turn that puts Scout spirit into action”  The Boy Scout Handbook, 12th Edition, page 84

Every member of Boy Scout Troop 10 is encouraged to earn community service hours for work completed outside of regular Troop activities which positively impact his community.

  • These hours may not be applied to any other service requirement he must meet for school, religious commitments or other social groups.
  • He may not receive any monetary reimbursement for his time and efforts.
  • His service should benefit a non-profit organization or group of people — other than his immediate family.

 

If you have performed service hours that meet these requirements, please print the Community Service Hours Form follow the guidelines, and continue to spread your Scout spirit throughout our community.

 

Current Troop Sponsored Service Projects:

Holiday Bell Ringing with The Salvation Army

Email Tina Seeley to sign-up for a shift or two.

 

To post a Community Service Project on this Web Page, please send details to webmaster@bsatroop10.org.

Have an idea for a Troop 10 Community Service project?  Talk with the T10 Community Service Chair, Tina Seeley.

 

Troop 10 Community Service Policy:

Community Service hours are not interchangeable with Activity Requirements.  An exception is made for Scouts working towards completion of Second Class 3a and First Class 3 activity requirements. In this case only will the Scout be awarded both an Activity and Community Service credit when he participates in a Troop 10 Eagle Project, Highway Clean-up, Timberlake Project or other Community Service Project approved by the Troop 10 Community Service Chair.
