A very important organization celebrated their anniversary recently. The American Heritage Girls are now 18 years old. When they started, the group had just a hand full of girls and met in a school facility. Today, they have over 30,000 members – and there is a reason for their remarkable success.
American Heritage Girls was organized to create an alternative to the Girl Scouts, which has systematically been fostering ideas that many families can't support. The stated mission of AHG is to be a character development organization for young women that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement.
