Additional Unit Resources

Report Your Service Hours

A requirement for “Scouting’s Journey to Excellence” is to log your service hours online. Scout Masters and Troop Committee Chairs, please remember to log on and track your eagle scout service hours as well.

Internet Advancement

Internet Advancement allows you to register once as a first time user and then to log in as a returning user to submit ranks and awards for your unit members. If you log out before you submit a report, your data will be saved. Additionally, Internet Advancement will dynamically return you to the Stage you were in when you left. For example, if you have completed Stage 1 of the process, when you return, you will begin at Stage 2. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Load your unit information from the council or upload an advancement file.

2. Select the members you wish to update and insert the new advancement information.

3. Submit your unit's advancement information to the council. Then print the Advancement Report packet that includes the Unit Awards Summary. Units set their own schedule for submitting reports. We recommend submitting a report every month. Each December a final report with anything not already recorded for the year should be submitted before month end.

There is also an advancement tracking tool in ScoutBook that now can be set to automatically sync with the national advancement database. For more information, check out this post from Bryan on Scouting.


Please email Tim Brackett with any comments/suggestions.
