Community Service

Scouting was founded on the premise of doing a Good Turn daily. Community service is very important in the character-building process and, as Scouts, we have made the commitment to give back to our communities. 

Troop 12 encourages all Scouts to participate in service projects whether they need the hours or not, as a way to give back to the community. If you are looking to do a community service project for rank advancement, please complete the following form and speak to the Scoutmaster for approval BEFORE you go to the project.
