Tony DiTucci serves DGA Builders, LLC as its vice president, and in his free time works with various community organizations including the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Tony DiTucci has a long history with the Boy Scouts, and earned the Eagle Scout designation when he was young.

The largest element of the Eagle Scout program is the Eagle Scout Service Project, which requires prospective Eagle Scouts to assist others in their communities through service to an organization outside of BSA. This effort must have the approval of the organization in question as well as the Scout’s unit leader, unit committee, and council or district. The project must be completed after the Life Scout board of review, though Star Scouts are encouraged to start planning and discussing projects before gaining the Life Scout designation.

Eagle Scout projects must meet several requirements before approval. A Scout’s project must provide a clear opportunity to fulfill the community service element of the program. The project should also be one which is likely to provide a positive experience, and one which the Scout can reasonably complete. Finally, any safety issues must be addressed, and the Scout must commit to more detailed planning if the plan submitted is incomplete or overly broad.
