The Commissioners Pledge

On my honor I will do my best, by example in my daily life to make the Scout Oath and Law a more vital force for good character and citizenship in the lives of the youth and leaders I serve.

I will do my best to help secure, and to help make effective, the finest possible leadership for the units I serve.

I will do my best to help make the program of the units I serve the best they can be, rich in wholesome fun and adventure.

In all that I do, I will strive to help my units attract into membership every qualified youth so that through their participation, those youth can help make America a finer, greater nation in the world community.
