Mission & Values

One of the most powerful results of living the Girl Scout Law is the ability to exercise and recognize true leadership. Being honest and fair, courageous and strong, using resources wisely, respecting yourself and others, and making the world a better place…these are values that our staff and our volunteers on a national and a local level continually teach, model, and reinforce. I am proud that for 100 years Girl Scouting has produced and attracted so many examples of confidence, courage, and character in our girls and the adults who lead them.

Our Mission

Courage. Confidence. Character.

The Girl Scout mission is simple: To build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, we help girls discover, connect, and take action to positively impact their communities.

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, 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 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.
