Advancement is an integral part of the Scouting program which provides recognition for individual effort and accomplishment, as well as a measure of acquired proficiency in basic skills.
Advancement is a three-part obligation of:
- The Scout to take the initiative and to work;
- The parents to encourage excellence;
- The adult leaders of the Troop to provide guidance and opportunity.
Requirements for advancement are described in the Boy Scout Handbook and other Scout literature.
Both Scout and parent should be thoroughly familiar with the requirements. The Scoutmaster, Advancement Chairman, and other adult leaders as well as the Scout leadership can answer questions about getting started on the "Eagle Trail."
