Managing his project

We currently have 3 Eagle Scout projects in the works in our troop. I helped out at this one Friday night for a few hours. John is building a mobile mini golf set for a local school for severely disabled students. John watches as two adult leaders attach boards to the back of his golf green.
They should become wonderful adults.

Nice action shot. Out of curiousity, did the young man actually build some of this project or did he design and direct others as they built it?

@randystreat He did help build some, but the Boy Scouts make them do this to learn leadership. They do come up with the project, make a proposal (first phase of paperwork), then they design the project. They are in charge of fundraising and buying all the materials they need. Then when they set up a work day, they let everyone know, give a safety brief and tell everyone what to do. When it's all done, there is a ton of paperwork where they have to account for all the finances and their leadership on the project. It's a long process. Then they have to present the whole project to a board for their Eagle Scout rank, so they have to refine their public speaking skills.
