Eagle Scouts: Troop 76 Scouts are dedicated to earning the rank of Eagle, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. In a pool of thirty Scouts, twelve have achieved the rank of Eagle, four more are soon to become Eagle, and many of the remaining others will follow. The Eagle Scouts of Troop 76 mentor the younger Scouts and encourage them to follow the same path.
Leadership: Troop 76 is a smaller troop that provides more opportunities for leadership roles. Scouts of Troop 76 get real life experience on leading and become good leaders. Boy Lead: There is heavy emphasis on the BSA boy-led model in Troop 76. The adult leaders believe it is important to teach the Scouts leadership skills and let them lead, make decisions, and run the Troop. At times, they will not be effective, and they will make mistakes, but this is how they will learn and develop to become better leaders.
Values: Youths in Troop 76 become young men of good character and learn to have a high standard of values. They reflect on the values set by the Scout law and live their lives by both the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Scout Law: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
Service: Scouts in Troop 76 learn the importance of giving back to the community. Troop 76 Scouts perform many service projects, including: conservation on Angel Island, helping out the local church, flag planting during Memorial Day weekend, Scouting for Food, helping out with the many Eagle projects, and many others service projects.
