    Service Opportunities/Eagle Scout Projects
    The Town of Queen Creek is always in need of great volunteers. Over the years, the Town has benefited from numerous service projects which have made Queen Creek a better place to live. We have many projects that would qualify for a memorable Eagle Scout Project, and we encourage you to involve your parents and leaders to develop the appropriate action plan. We look forward to working with you on your journey to becoming an Eagle Scout.
