Download the guidelines for the My Promise, My Faith Pin
Girl Scouts and Faith
Girl Scouts has always provided many opportunities for girls to grow in their respective religious faiths and each girl is encouraged to develop her own strong values within the context of family, faith and the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
The My Promise, My Faith pin is an award found within each grade level’s edition of Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. Earning this award helps girls explore how Girl Scouting and their faith offer similar ideas about how to interact with the world around them—and how Girl Scouting can tie into their faiths.
My Promise, My Faith
Girl Scouts encourages girls to grow their faith and is based on
Scout Promise and Law, which includes many of the principles and
values common to most faiths. Although a secular organization, Girl
Scouts has, since the movement began, encouraged girls to explore
their spirituality by earning the My Promise, My Faith pin.
Throughout this journey, girls open up conversations with women in their religious community, research inspiring quotes that resonate with the part of the Girl Scout Law on which they have chosen to focus, and create a work of art to express what they’ve learned with their friends, family, and possibly even the larger community. Girls of all grade levels are eligible once each year to earn the My Promise, My Faith pin.
Religious recognitions are created by national religious organizations/committees to encourage the spiritual growth of their youth members and reinforce many of the values integral to Girl Scouting. While My Promise, My Faith helps girls connect Girl Scouting with their faith, the religious recognitions programs help girls grow stronger in and learn more specifically about their faith.
