Service Hours

Log your Service Hours

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. 

Each Unit should Log into the National Site to log your annual service hours.

(Keep this information somewhere where you can find it, because you will need it to change your user name or password.) 
  4. TIP:  If your unit number has less than four digits, add zeros in front of the number so that you have four digits (example: Unit 12 = 0012).
