American Heritage Girls (AHG) was founded by a group of parents wanting a faith-based, scout-type character development program for their daughters in 1995. AHG girls across the nation and the globe participate in badge programs, service projects, leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences, all with an emphasis on Christian values and family involvement!

Changing Girls’ Lives and Leading Them Towards a More Christ-Centered Life.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is excited to become one of the many chartered Catholic Churches for American Heritage Girls (AHG)! This program will be for girls ages 5-18 and will include a multitude of opportunities for them to engage with and serve their communities, gain leadership experience, earn badges, and more! “Whether you’re the parent of a brand-new kindergartner or a teenage girl navigating the ever-changing world of high school, American Heritage Girls is excited by the opportunity to come alongside parents like you to raise Godly girls. Our world desperately requires a generation of women who know who they are and whose they are in Christ. The AHG Program is at the forefront of this urgent need, teaching girls the incredible God-given worth that lies within them” (AHG)

Mission: Building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.
Vision: American Heritage Girls is the premier national character development organization for young women that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement.
