Service Projects

One of the cornerstones of Boy Scouting is “helping other people”. The PLC schedules service projects for the Troop on a regular basis.  The Troop helps Saint Matthews United Methodist Church (the Troop’s charter organization) where help is needed. Other projects have included waterway cleanups and service offered to local and National Parks. Scouts are expected to participate in these opportunities as part of their Scouting experience.

Rank advancement for Star and Life require six hours of service on projects approved by the Older Patrol Scoutmaster.

Lastly, the rank of Eagle requires the candidate to identify, plan, and lead a service project.  Scouts of Troop 1525, when asked, are highly encouraged to help Eagle Scouts on their service projects.
