One Heart is the underlying principle for Girl Scouts Heart of the South that encourages members to practice kindness and compassion, seek common ground and understanding, and to serve our neighbors and communities, while living the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
This is the way we strive to operate daily - in our words and in our actions.
We are inviting every member to join us in the One Heart principle.

Ways you can introduce the One Heart principle at your next troop meeting:
- Designate 15 minutes at the start of the meeting to explain the principle. Reflect on the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Ask each girl to share how they are living out One Heart. Challenge them to think of ways they can live it over the next week.
- Dedicate 5-10 minutes of every troop meeting to reflect, discuss and share how girls continue to strive towards living out One Heart.
- You can break the One Heart principle down into three sections: practice kindness and compassion; seek common ground and understanding; and to serve our neighbors and communities. Talk about each area during a month and ask how girls can practice, seek and serve.
These are great ideas for Service Unit Meetings too!
It's easy to get lost in agendas, budgets, calendars and more, so start your meetings with purpose and reflect upon the One Heart principal, and the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Focus your attention how you can build girls of courage, confidence and courage. We are the examples for the girls and when we practice kindness and compassion, seek common ground and understanding, and to serve our neighbors and communities, we are making the world a better place.
