Our promise links us to the 10 million people involved in guiding across the world.

The Promise

I promise that I will do my best,

to be true to myself and develop my beliefs,

to serve the King 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 King and my community,

It is important to help to protect the world and our community.

To help other people

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

And to keep the Guide Law

The Guide Laws

There are 6 Guide Laws. Don't worry, you don't have to learn them all when you make your promise!
