Through developing partnerships with local companies and organizations, the Baltimore Area Council is creating opportunities for Eagle Scouts to participate in internships or service learning experiences throughout many different fields. It’s SIMPLE!!!
Eagle Scouts are asked to complete a simple survey providing some basic information including their specific interest in careers and vocations. Companies and organizations looking to provide an internship or service learning experience to Eagle Scouts simply complete a survey asking for information such as contact, overview, qualifications, etc. Finally, companies and organizations looking to partner with Eagle Scouts for internships opportunities are paired with potential candidates.
