Help others to achieve mutual goals
Great characteristic to have later in life “There is a major difference between the service projects for Star and Life, and the one you (the Scout) will complete for Eagle. In the first two, you (the Scout) can be a follower. The Eagle Scout service project requires that you (the Scout) be a leader.”

- The Official Boy Scout Handbook, page 173

“The main purpose of an Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project is to demonstrate the leadership skills that the Scouting Program gives young men.”
