Promise consultation now open

Girl Guides

The Promise is guiding’s beating heart – it’s the core expression of our values and the common standard that brings us all together. But over the past few years we have heard from more and more girls and Leaders who struggle with the wording, particularly interpreting what it really means to girls today.

Girlguiding is committed to retaining a Promise that is in line with its original principles, but we know it’s crucial that girls and young women understand and believe in the words they say. That’s why, in the 2012-14 Strategic Plan agreed by the Executive Committee of Girlguiding, it was decided to invite all members as well as other interested parties to discuss the wording of the Promise. We know feelings are strong and wide-ranging. This is why everyone’s opinion matters.
