One of the required objectives for a unit to complete to be a bronze, silver or gold unit is to complete 2 or more service projects and enter the data in the service hours reporting system. The service projects can be almost anything that benefits a chartered organization or the community. Eagle Service projects count also. All troops are doing community service but may not be getting credit for it. Boy Scouts must complete community service to advance in rank for Tenderfoot through Life. These hours can be counted. The important thing is to be sure to log in to the Journey to Excellence site and report these hours frequently. We suggest you have your unit secretary do it quarterly or monthly so you are on a schedule. The site is located at: www.Scouting.org/JTE.
