One of the ways that Girl Scouts can strengthen their connection to their faith, place of worship and the Girl Scout Law, is with the My Promise, My Faith pin.
Earning this award help girls explore how Girl Scouting and their faith offer similar ideas about how to act and how to treat people—and how Girl Scouting can tie into their faith. Girls can earn this pin once a year, every year that they are in Girl Scouting.
You will find the requirements for the My Promise, My Faith pin in every Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting handbook.
Additional Religious Awards
Religious recognitions are created by national religious organizations/committees to encourage the spiritual growth of their youth members and reinforce many of the values integral to Girl Scouting. While My Promise, My Faith helps girls connect Girl Scouting with their faith, the religious recognitions programs help girls grow stronger in and learn more specifically about their faith.
Each religious organization/committee develops and administers its own program. The To Serve God religious recognitions brochure shows the religious recognitions that have been created by various faith groups. You can find this brochure, a video that explains the religious recognitions programs, and other resources for collaborating with the faith community at P.R.A.Y. Publishing’s website
For Catholic religious recognitions, there may be training required in the fall. Please contact your Diocesan office for more information.
