Service Hours for Recharter & JTE Scores

Has your Unit completed any service projects during the Spring, Summer, or this Fall?

Clean-up projects? Scouting for Food? Charter Organization work? Community work?

A service project is a special Good Turn that puts Scout spirit into action.
Some Good Turns are big—saving a life, helping out after floods or other disasters,
recycling community trash, working on conservation projects.

But Good Turns are often small, thoughtful acts—helping a child cross a busy street,
going to the store for an elderly neighbor, cutting back brush that is blocking a sign,
doing something special for a brother or sister, or welcoming a new student to your school.

Anyone can get involved in a Good Turn. If you would like to participate in a service project
to benefit your community, contact Walt Winkler.

Don't forget to enter/claim those worked service hours here:

This helps everyone's JTE score and shows how
the Boy Scouts are giving back to their communities.
