The Town of Holly Springs Parks & Recreation Department is proud to partner with scouts to complete projects that help build skills and contribute to the community in meaningful ways. Parks & Recreation staff receives numerous requests annually for various boy and girl scout volunteer projects. For the scout and the project to be successful, staff has established a review process for project proposals.
- Complete the online scout project application.
- The Town's scout project coordinator will review the application and evaluate the scout’s project ideas.
- The scout and Town staff will meet to define the timeline and project details.
- The scout finalizes the plans for the project and sets up a meeting with the scout project coordinator to receive final approval of the project, funding sources, timeline, and work schedule.
- Once the project is complete, the scout will request a final site visit from the scout project coordinator.
- The scout will then need to submit a paper copy of the final project report that includes photos and documentation to the scout project coordinator, who will provide the final signature.
