The Girl Scout Law

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 resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

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