We are Troop NY-1412!
chartered by New Covenant Church
American Heritage Girls (AHG) is a faith-based character development program for girls ages 5-18, dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. AHG is for families with daughters who are seeking a scout-type experience.
Founded in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio, AHG has grown 30-50 percent each year since its inception in 1995 and now has more than 40,000 members.
With programming that puts an emphasis on faith, service, and fun, girls choose from more than 240 badges, participate in service projects, and are challenged by leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences. Troops are led by adult volunteers who facilitate the AHG program while encouraging girl leadership. Faith-based organizations like churches, schools and civic organizations charter AHG to achieve their ministry goals for youth.
“Now more than ever, families are seeking faith-based activities for their daughters to complement their values and instill leadership and servant hearts through service to their community,” says AHG Executive Director and Founder Patti Garibay.
AHG has received an endorsement from Dr. James Dobson, child psychologist and author. In his book, Bringing Up Girls, Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said, “I recommend American Heritage Girls enthusiastically to parents who want their daughters involved in a traditional Christian- based program that will reinforce what they are trying to teach at home.”
