The Promise and Law
What is the Promise and Law?
The Guide Promise and The Guide Law form the principles of Guiding. A Guide makes her promise at a special Unit ceremony, where she receives her Promise Badge which is worn on her uniform.
The Guide Promise
Every Girl and adult that is a member of Guiding throughout the world makes a Promise. The words may be slightly different from country to country but the spirit and meaning of the words are the same wherever Guiding exists. The Australian Promise is:
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
Guides also abide by a set of laws that provide a framework and philosophy for living. The Australian Guide Law is:
As a Guide I will strive to:
- 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
- Be thoughtful and optimistic
- Live with courage and strength
