The Promise

I promise that I will do my best,

to be true to myself and develop my beliefs,

to serve the Queen and my community, 

to help other people

and to keep the Guide Law.

What does it mean?

I promise that I will do my best

Attempt new challenges and try to be the best that you can be.

To be true to myself

Stand up for the things you think are important and celebrate the things that make you happy.

And develop my beliefs

Your own personal beliefs - beliefs don't have to be related to religion. 

To serve the Queen and my community

The Queen is the patron of Girlguiding and it is important to help to protect the world.

To help other people

They could be your friends, family, neighbours, people in other countries, etc.

And to keep the Guide Law
