I AM A GIRL SCOUT
LEADER: Girl Scouting is strengthened by our love and dedication to our Girl Scout code of living – the Promise and the Law. They are the cornerstones upon which we have built a program that will develop each one of us to assume the responsibilities and accept the privileges of citizenship, and to develop a set of true values. Let’s join together to say our Promise. (make Girl Scout sign)

LEADER: We will repeat the Girl Scout Law.
ALL: 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.
