Boy Scouts of America
The revised Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook, has been published electronically on the Advancement Resources webpage at www.scouting.org/advancement. Simultaneously, the previous workbook was removed and can no longer be accessed.
The revised workbook is not fundamentally different from its predecessor. It has been reorganized, some functionality has been improved, a few clarifications made, and a new document added for project beneficiaries.
Scouts who have already downloaded and begun working with the previous version of the workbook will be allowed to continue using it, whether or not their proposal has been apporved. A Scout whose proposal has already been approved using the original workbook may opt to use the "Final Plan", the "Fundraising Application", and the "Project Report" sections of the revised workbook. Scouts who have not begun working on their proposal must now use the May 2014 version of the workbook.
