Projects Benefitting Our Community

Ready for some real talk?

The Long Beach Area Council recognizes over 60 Eagle Scouts per year and provides over 35,000 hours of service back to our own community every single year. But what does that mean? 

Check out some of the projects our Scouts are doing around town. Since January 1, 2012, Scouts have performed more than 150 service projects in the Greater Long Beach Area alone. We're willing to bet you recognize some of these projects
