– a search website to find the perfect local service project for you.

Once you find a service project that you plan to participate in for service hours toward a rank requirement be sure to check with the Troop’s Adult Rank Advisor in advance to ensure that the project will meet your rank’s necessary requirements.

It’s simple to get your search started:

1. Click on the following link:  Volunteering Search

2. Once you get to the “Opportunity Search” page in the “Type” menu: use the drop down menu and select “Hands On

3. Cause menu; Select a cause or leave the default “any cause

4. Area of interest menu; leave the default “any area of interest

5. Agency menu; select a particular agency or leave the default “any agency

6. Location menu; you can select number of miles from your entered zip code.  Example 10 from 60187 is a 10 mile radius from Wheaton, OR Check the “At home” box if you want to do your project from home

7. Check “Teens” box and your correct age box

8. Click on the Search button

 What then follows are all the volunteer opportunities that meet your search parameters.  Each agency lists all the details of their volunteer opportunities and click on “More Information”  to get their contact information.

Remember the more specific parameters you set on the Opportunity Search page the fewer volunteer opportunities will be listed.

Good Luck and remember a Scout “helps other people at all times”.
