Girl Guides around the World have been making the Guide Promise for more than 100 years.


After joining Girl Guides, Guides attend a special ceremony where they make the Guide Promise and receive a Promise Badge and Certificate.

At this time Guides agree to live by the values listed in The Guide Law and strive to keep their Promise.

The Guide Promise

I promise that I will do my best
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs
To serve my community and Australia
And live by the Guide Law

The Guide Law

  • Respect myself and others 
  • Be considerate, honest and trustworthy 
  • Be friendly to others 
  • Make choices for a better world 
  • Use my time and abilities wisely

  • Live with courage and strength
