The principles, upon which Girl Scouts was founded more than 100 years ago, remain the cornerstone for how we govern ourselves and how we guide our members. The Girl Scout Promise and Law are learned by and shared among every Girl Scout member. The Promise is the way Girl Scouts agree to act toward one another and other people every day, and the Law outlines the way that members act towards one another and the world.
The 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.
The 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,
and to respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place,
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
