This document is intended to serve as an outline and reference for general guidance of Life Scouts as they progress, with the assistance of their parents and Scout Leaders, toward the rank of Eagle Scout. It is important to remember that the information presented in this outline, and all referenced documents, is in no way intended to, and does not, supersede or modify the official Advancement Committee Policies and Procedures of the Boy Scouts of America (as of this writing Publication Number 33088, Copyright 1989 BSA, current printing). This material is only intended to serve as general guidance to assist with interpretation of Scouting requirements as implemented by the Yankee Clipper Council (YCC).
The tools and materials referenced in the outline below are too extensive to place in a single written document.

Following the outline allows a Life Scout to find specific information related to the key steps on the trail to Eagle Scout in a sequence that tracks the typical advancement path.
Follow the steps below and use the referenced documents as a guide on the trail from Life Scout to Eagle Scout:
