Messengers of Peace 

9.0.2.16 Eagle Scout Service Projects and Messengers of Peace

Any Scout or Scouter who participates in a service project—Eagle Scout service projects included—that has a significant impact on the community in any one of the following three dimensions may qualify as a "Messenger of Peace" and wear the Messenger of Peace ring patch available from Scout shops.

1. The personal dimension: harmony, justice, and equality

2. The community dimension: peace as opposed to hostility or violent conflict

3. Relationships between humankind and its environment: security, social and economic welfare, and relationship with the environment

Since Eagle Scout service projects are conducted for religious institutions, schools, or the community—and would thus directly or indirectly impact one of the three dimensions—almost all Eagle projects would certainly qualify as Messenger of Peace projects. Thus, when reporting project hours through the Journey to Excellence service hours website, "Messengers of Peace" should be selected as one of the categories for the project description.
