Girl Scout Mission

Girl Scout Law

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to, respect myself and others, respect authority, use resouces wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

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 word “God” can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one’s spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promis, it is okay to replace the word “God” with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
