The Girl Scout Promise & Law
- On my honor, I will try:
- To serve God and my country,
- To help people at all times,
- And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
I will do my best to be: honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.
On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) in Savannah, Georgia. Today, GSUSA is the world's pre-eminent organization dedicated solely to girls. In an accepting and nurturing environment, they build character and skills for success in the real world.
In 1920 a group of volunteers began Girl Scouts here at home in Ogden, Utah. Girl Scouts of Utah (GSU) serves over 8,000 girls in grades K through 12, who are supported by 3,500 dedicated adult volunteers.
Girl Scouts is rich in history and tradition. The GSU Heritage Museum collection is comprised of historical items related to the Girl Scout Movement. From uniforms to badges, pictures, and journals, the collection provides a link to the past and showcases the girls and women of courage and vision who paved the way.
