The Girl Scout mission – building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place — guided by the Girl Scout Promise and Law is what defines the Girl Scout Movement. The Girl Scout Law clearly spells out our values: honesty, fairness, friendship, consideration, caring for others, courage, strength, responsibility, and respect, both for oneself and for authority. We regard these values, as we have for nearly a century, as a solid basis for a life of leadership, integrity, and service.
