Appointed by Scoutmaster
...serve actively in your unit for X months in one or more of the following positions of responsibility (or carry out a Scoutmaster-assigned leadership project to help the unit)....


A Scoutmaster-assigned leadership project can take many forms, and be designed to correspond with the Scout’s interests and abilities. As the Guide to Advancement suggests, a Scout can propose a leadership project that he finds particularly interesting.

Perhaps a Scout who especially enjoys first aid could create some resources for his fellow Scouts, engage expert instructors, and advise the quartermaster on assembling a troop first aid kit. A set of responsibilities that correspond to the lessons of the listed positions could be created by the Scout himself, in collaboration with the Scoutmaster, or another Scouter. Those responsibilities are approved in advance by the Scoutmaster, and the Scout’s progress is monitored and evaluated for fulfillment of the rank requirement.

4 meetings/month @ 2 hours each - 8 hours

1 event/month @ 4 hours each - 4 hours
Total = 12 hours
50-75% attendance = 6-8 hours

==> ~6-8 hours project work = 1 month service
