Girl Scouts and Faith
Everything in Girl Scouting is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law, which includes many of the principles and values common across religions. So while we are a secular organization, Girl Scouts has always encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys via their faiths' religious recognitions.
For questions about Girl Scouts and faith or anything on this page, please contact Alberta Swain.
My Promise, My Faith
Girls of all grade levels can earn the My Promise, My Faith pin, which complements existing religious recognitions and allows girls to further strengthen the connection between their faith and Girl Scouts. Once each year, a girl can earn the My Promise, My Faith pin by carefully examining the Girl Scout Law and tying it directly to tenets of her faith. Requirements for this pin are included in The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting handbook for all levels.
Want to tag girls on social media who have earned their My Promise, My Faith pin? Use hashtag #MPMFP2P.
Girl Scouts of the USA partners with P.R.A.Y. (Programs of Religious Activities with Youth) as a resource for faith-based programs. You can learn more about P.R.A.Y. here.
Other religious organizations may not be affiliated with P.R.A.Y. or may not have a national office. To learn about other local religious organizations, contact your local leaders.
Girl Scout Sunday
Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March, starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on Saturday. Girl Scout Sunday and Girl Scout Sabbath give girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout.
Want to tag your Girl Scout Sunday photos so we can share them on social media? Use hashtag #GSSundayP2P.
If you are interested in a customized bulletin insert for use throughout the year, please contact email@example.com.
