How can Scout Troops participate in the Veterans History Project?

The Eagle Scout Service Project (Boy Scouts of America) or Gold Award Project (Girls Scouts) are ideal opportunities for youth to participate in the Veterans History Project (VHP). Scouts seeking to earn their Eagle badge or Gold Award typically submit eight to 15 VHP interviews following special guidelines designed just for them.

A VHP staff member must sign off as the Beneficiary on each Scout’s proposal prior to participation. Other youth organizations may use these guidelines for their own awards or community service programs. Email vohp@loc.gov to inquire about Scout participation.
