To earn the Boy Scout ranks of Star, Life, and Eagle, a scout has to serve in a position of responsibility for six months (four months for Star rank). But not every position of responsibility applies. Assistant patrol leader, for example, is not considered a position of responsibility in this sense. But senior patrol leader is.
To keep it all straight, here’s a short guide to which positions in a troop, team, crew, or ship will count for advancement.
FOR STAR AND LIFE SCOUT: Patrol leader, assistant senior patrol leader, senior patrol leader, Venture patrol leader, troop guide, Order of the Arrow troop representative, den chief, scribe, librarian, historian, quartermaster, bugler, junior assistant Scoutmaster, chaplain aide, instructor, troop webmaster, or Leave No Trace trainer.
FOR EAGLE SCOUT: Same as Star/Life, except bugler is removed.
