October

status

update

of

Eagle

Scout

in only two years now this one I haven't completed much merit badge wise or rank wise but what I've have been doing is focusing a leadership not just towards myself and for the other

Scout

s in my troop now just a quick overview there are seven

Scout

ranks 16 leadership positions and 21 merit badges that you need for

Eagle

Scout

now instead of just focusing on myself I've been
most important scouting job   eagle scout october status update
trying to teach the other

Scout

s in my troop different responsibilities organization skills and leadership skills so I'm actually able to delegate objectives to them so that I've having me filled up with all this different parts of work that I need to do now Frank wise I still haven't completed anything but the ranks I have gotten is

scout

rank which I've actually made videos on how to get this rank so please check that out link is in the description Tenderfoot rank second class
first class and I am currently star

scout

so that is five out of the seven ranks now leadership positions as I said before I was senior patrol leader but the ones I've been before that is quartermaster den chief patrol leader instructor and I was senior patrol leader which is what this video is going to be based around and now I'm aiming towards getting another leadership position now here's a little bit of a sob story now I have quit my troop now this does not mean I quit

scout

ing
is I had a very good reason it was not Scott letting any more I did not like it it was completely changed from when I was in charge and I'm not just saying that cuz it was a different way it was literally not how Boy

Scout

s is supposed to be so I am transferring to a new troop anyway I'm trying to get assistant senior patrol leader there so instead of having 5 out of the 16 now I have a new leadership role as assistant senior patrol leader at least it's what I'm hoping because
then I can continue my months for being active in a troop there are many more leadership positions but I feel that being assistant senior patrol leader will be helpful towards me as it allowed me an assistance I won't be having to do all the work but I'm still experienced so I can help but the troop that I'm now joining so that's five out of the sixteen hopefully it will be six soon now when I was talking about Boylan that's what

scout

ing is supposed to be

scout

ing so as to
be led by the

scout

s with the adults having guidance if you're in a troop and you're noticing that maybe the adults are focusing too heavily on a couple

Scout

s only or maybe the adults have completely taken control I'm not saying your troop is wrong I'm just saying maybe something needs to be organized better to wear more

Scout

s our leadership positions or more

Scout

s or planning things that's how

scout

ing supposed to be that's why the term is called

Scout

led now when
I'm joining a new troop or even when you're joining a new troop what are things you should look for oh oh I've compiled a list of things I'm looking for as I'm joining the troop of course the top thing is

Scout

s provide leadership or a term that many other people have heard Boylan but now people say

Scout

leadership so I'll you also want a troop to be fairly organized it has schedules it has future planning for events and activities people provide guidance to each other
they're not just bossing each other around where there's the hierarchy of the higher class just bossing on everyone else everyone gives each other guidance everyone learns from each other's and everyone contributes to the troop and of course asked to provide a fun experience because then why are you there it's now fun if it's not even pertaining towards you if it's not being subjected towards everyone as a whole now what I said about events a troop should at least have
most important scouting job   eagle scout october status update
one activity per month preferably a campout but it doesn't have to be a campout some examples are biking or cycling as shown here swimming hiking fishing basically any event that can be considered a troop activity out of the scheduled meeting time so once again make sure a troop has like an annual calendar of some kind or at least some feature events plans so you can have activities for ranks or just for the experience with just a little bit of background planning you can create a very good
experience if you communicate it out towards everyone and also if you have a plan to begin with if you just show up to an event with nothing to do then you're literally just stuck there like going on a campout with no objective however if you plan ahead like this event here during summer camp you can really have a fun time this was an Indian event where there was dancing drums music and they even shot a cannonball at the end which was very nice to see and also there were a firework displays
which lasted for a while and just a little bit of extra planning and putting real effort into scanning can really make a big difference for you and for others in the truth so just keep that in mind that you can it's not just being in

scout

ing oh it's boring you can make it however you want as long as you're putting in the needed effort to actually make it like that now just a couple more things make sure

Scout

s are actually advancing and are not stagnant at one-ranked there was a kid
in my troop or my former troop who literally stayed the same rank for over two years because the adults took over and we're not focusing on everyone they were just focusing on a couple of

Scout

s also we want to personally grow yourself to learn new skills if you're not learning if you're not being embedded into the program of

scout

ing then you're not really gaining anything from it also make sure that a troop is respectful towards the

Scout

Oath law outdoor code and faith and
there's adequate communication among the troop I can't tell you how many times my troop has been rushing because of miscommunication maybe an email was not sent out or maybe times were mixed up so just make sure not as a nominee only isn't organized but it gets across towards everyone it's communicated among the truth now I've been talking about more troop wise but that all factors into an SPL as well so you need to know how a troops supposed to be like in order to be an SPL
because as I've mentioned in other past videos the SPO is the top of the hierarchy or as you can say the PLC which is the patrol leaders committee the SPO which is the senior patrol leader is at the top now before I get into it let's just talk more about my

status

update

first and then I'll get more into senior patrol leader so as I said before I am star

Scout

I completed this over the summer and I that was actually a very big accomplishment for my career for

scout

ing so for a life

scout

I'm 46 percent of the way there because I'm still waiting to get service hours which is I need six of them but that's in progress I also need a couple more things but the service hours is when I'm mainly focusing on you need to be active at least six months as a star

scout

which I'm not so worried about since I'm joining another troop very soon demonstrates

Scout

spirit earn five more merit badges so you have eleven in all so that includes the one person from star
most important scouting job   eagle scout october status update

scout

you need to participate in six hours of service three of them need to be Conservation related and be active six months in a position of responsibility or the leadership positions hence why I mentioned the assistant senior patrol leader that I wanted to be in my new troop and also use the edge method to teach another

Scout

and that's really all I need I already have the demonstrate

Scout

spirit I have the five more merit badges I just need the waiting period of the six months and the
six hours of service for

Eagle

Scout

I'm sixty-one percent of the way there that's in progress that's the entire goal of my channel and my goal in general for

scout

ing the

Eagle

Scout

merit badge is I'm not gonna list them all because they're the same as my last

status

update

so I'm not gonna name them all again I'm just gonna say technically I do have 20 out of the 21 required but that's only technical because that's 20 in total not 20 that are required for

Eagle

if that makes sense based on the amount of badges that I have with silver rings around them that an

eagle

required I actually only have 17 out of 21 so that means I still need four more now those former that I need our family life citizenship in the community communication and personal fitness which I have not started yet but I will very soon some non

Eagle

ones I'm working on just to get more experience is the archeology merit badge reading and salesmanship so hopefully by the next
few months I'll have plus eight more mayor badges and also if I get the four at the top that all suffice the 21 that I need for

Eagle

Scout

so I actually made a video on camping last week so please check that out that leak link will be in the description I think it's very helpful because I cover very

important

tips and tricks to get the camping merit badge another merit badge that I've got in is cooking this one was a very long one but I finally got that completed last month and
emergency preparedness as well this when I started over at summer camp and then completed in my free time the mayor badges I'm working on now is communications I'm ninety two percent of the way there so that's in progress family life I need to finish a few more things but not just a few but I'm al

most

done with a few more things so it says 44 but once I get this last few things done I'll have the mayor badge so that's in progress citizenship in the community twenty-nine
percent that's in progress salesmanship I'm ten percent and archaeology six percent railroading three percent reading zero percent I haven't started it yet but I I'm planning to and the last mayor badge that I'm trying to get it's personal fitness which is one of the

Eagle

required and that is zero because I have not started I have not started it yet speaking of starting things why do I start to explain what SPL is and maybe my time as SPO now there are common
misconceptions SPO isn't in charge of everyone SPO is in charge of the POC and is in charge of doing all the background planning like they don't actually like get to say what exactly happens in each event they're just doing the background planning on what may be where they're going what the pricing is maybe contacting people and the SPO is in charge and they oversee all the other people in the troop and the PLC now they don't do all the work they delegate from the PLC they
can delegate towards the assistant senior patrol leader they can delegate towards the patrol leaders and when you do that it efficiently functions as a troop together so the SPL is literally the backbone of the troop without a fully functioning SPL you can't have a fully functioning troop now my times as SPL I was able to build back a dead troop but I eventually got it up to 12 and was able to function it and that's why I wanted to provide leadership not swords myself but towards others
in the troop because as soon as I'm done SPO that means someone needs to take my shoes and do all the stuff that I've been doing so I've been trying to teach the other

Scout

s on the different leadership positions I've been trying to get them to be more organized I've been delegating more objectives towards the patrol leader to see if they can handle without me doing everything and so far I has worked and now that I'm actually literally not in the troop hopefully they can
sustain themselves my favorite time in petrolia is probably over a summer camp because everything has worked out so smoothly there was essentially no issues and summer camp was probably my favorite time because we had a schedule everything worked out fine we've been planning for it for like a month and when we got there we just set up our stuff and started planning more things and what we're gonna do at what times what days are certain events happening and it was probably one of the
coolest times that my troop has been able to work together thank you for watching my
