Girl Scout Promise and Law
The Promise and Law provide the framework and ethical code for the Girl Scout program.
The values expressed in the Promise and Law serve as the foundation for all activities in
the Girl Scout program. Girl Scout membership is extended to all girls who
accept the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Girl Scout Promise
On my honor I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong,
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
|Used thoughtfully and often in your everyday life,
the Promise and Law can help you take action
when you are faced with a decision. They can help you define or articulate the personal values
that will give meaning and direction to your life.
*The word "God" has always been used to represent the spiritual foundation of the
Girl Scout movement. Since Girl Scouting is for all girls, girls whose beliefs are
expressed by a word or phrase other than "God" may substitute that for the word "God"
when they say the Girl Scout Promise. When written, the word "God" is always in the Promise.
