AHG offers girls Christian programming that is rich in opportunities for girls of all ages and abilities. The AHG Program enables girls to grow in their faith, cultivate a heart for service, and have more fun than they can imagine! Determined by each family’s individual needs, girls can either join an AHG Troop or become AHG Trailblazers.

AHG Troops are owned and operated by Charter Organizations (churches and other non-profits that align with AHG’s Statement of Faith) meaning that churches and other like-minded ministries can customize their Troops to best accomplish their ministry goals, whether those be denominational or otherwise. American Heritage Girls comes alongside Charter Organizations in the mission to raise well-rounded, Godly girls and invest in their families.

AHG Trailblazer Membership is designed for military, missionary, and other families who are unable to join a Troop due to location, availability, or accessibility. Trailblazers independently participate in the AHG Program, and since all Trailblazer family situations are unique, the AHG Program allows for minor adaptations to fulfill the AHG Mission. In the Trailblazer experience, one girl or a set of sisters is mentored by the adult (often a parent) who meets AHG’s adult membership requirements and agrees to serve as the girl’s Trailblazer Mentor.

AHG seeks to provide girls with a balanced program that progresses with the girl—increasing in challenge and skill as she grows in maturity and knowledge. AHG is committed to not rushing a girl through girlhood and allowing her the time to grow and learn who she is and whose she is in Christ.
