Scripps-Mesa District Advancement
Committee (Updated as of April 2014)
1 - Trail to Eagle Program (Ongoing, watch for announcements)
These programs are presented two to three times per year. Contact a member of the Advancement Committee below to find out when the next one will be.
If you know or associate with a Life Scout, please ensure that he knows about this program. It is presented by Eagle Service Project Counselors and members of the Eagle Board of Review who are well versed in important points and pitfalls that may be encountered while pursuing the highest rank in scouting.
The program is held at the Mira Mesa LDS Church at 11023 Pegasus Ave., the same place as the monthly Roundtable. It begins at 9:00 am and lasts a little more than one hour. There is no charge for attendance, but please bring your own note-taking materials and copies of (1) the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook and (2) the Eagle Scout Rank Application, both of which are available at National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) website.
If you plan to attend, please let us know so we can be sure to have enough handouts. Please send an email to Layne Jensen at the address below.
