Ask the girl a simple question: “Why do you want to be a GS?” or “What does it mean to make a promise?” The girl answers in her own words.
Ask the girl to make her promise. This can be done singly or the whole troop at once. Help her if she is shy. Ask: “Do you promise to serve God and your country...?” This will help her recall the words. As she makes the Promise, she uses the GS sign and the troop stands quietly.
Pin the appropriate pin over the girl’s heart, telling her she is now a GS. Give the GS handshake and welcome her to GSing.
The girl turns to face the troop and they welcome her with the GS sign or a song
