NESA is young men searching for dynamic and challenging leadership roles. NESA is older Eagle Scouts who desire using their efforts and influence toward forming the kind of young men America needs for leadership. The objective of NESA is to serve—to serve Eagle Scouts and through them, the entire movement of Scouting.
In 2011 the National Eagle Scout Association created the National Outstanding Eagle Scout Award as a way to recognize adult Eagle Scouts who have demonstrated outstanding achievement at the local, state, or regional level. This can include exemplary volunteer service to Scouting and/or in the community, achievement in their professional field, distinguished military service, or other accomplishments over an extended period of time. The nominee must currently live within the boundaries of the council but does not have to have earned his Eagle Scout Award as a member of our council.
To nominate an Eagle Scout for this prestigious award, please see the NOESA Nomination Instructions

Join the growing number of Eagle Scouts who are giving back to the program that has meant so much to them. Every dollar you invest stays right here in our Council and helps send Scouts to camp, supports at-risk youth, and provides our volunteer leaders with the tools and resources needed to ensure the benefits of a high-quality program. The Eagle Giving Society was created as a way for Eagle Scouts who are not currently involved in a unit to give an annual gift to Scouting. Thank you to all of the Eagle Scouts who have already given an annual gift through the Cradle of Liberty Council’s Friends of Scouting campaign!
