Good Turn For America


Possible Service Project Scources

We've collected some resources to assist in helping a Boy Scout on the path to achieve Eagle Scout rank, plus  Packs, Troops, Venturing Crews or families wishing to provide service to the community.

A service project is a special Good Turn that puts Scout spirit into action. Anyone can get involved in a Good Turn. If you would like to participate in a service project to benefit your community, contact one of the sources below or the Mecklenburg County Council Scouting Center.
