Scouts need merit badges to advance to Eagle.  All BSA-approved merit badges have requirements.  We need you to teach a Merit Badge Class.

Teaching Merit Badge Classes - Troop 451 encourages parents to teach merit badge classes to the Scouts. Parents can choose a merit badge in which they have special interest or knowledge, or check with the Troop Merit Badge Coordinators to see which Eagle-required merit badge classes need to be taught.  See the Merit Badge Coordinators regarding the requirements for becoming a troop Merit Badge Counselor

The Troop maintains a library of merit badge booklets for both parent instructors and Scouts, and several merit badges have notes and teaching aids prepared by previous instructors. There is also a lot of information on the Web. The U.S. Scouting Service Project has an introduction to merit badge counseling and the www.meritbadge.org site has valuable links and worksheets that help in teaching merit badges.
