American Heritage Girls

Recently, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the American Heritage Girls (AHG) entered into an agreement to provide mutual support to each other.

The mission of the BSA is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.

American Heritage Girls was started in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1995 to offer a faith-based leadership and character development program to girls ages 5 to 18.

Through the AHG program, girls are enriched physically, mentally, and spiritually through a diverse range of badge activities, community service projects, and camping and outdoor programs, making the AHG a good “book-end” to a church sponsored BSA chartered Scout family.

The mission of American Heritage Girls is to “build women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.”  The small, all-girl unit, within the AHG troop structure, provides a nurturing environment for learning and building positive relationships.

The BSA recognizes the desire of lending aid and support to the citizenship, character development, and personal fitness of boys and young men and women through youth development programs such as AHG, and AHG encourages its members’ families to place their sons in like-minded BSA units.

Both the BSA and the AHG have decided to work with each other to establish a positive relationship and to cooperate in establishing AHG and BSA units as a result of the shared values and goals of both organizations.

The Tecumseh Council has been working with the National Office of the American Heritage Girls to take this one step further.  We are proud to announce that we have planned to introduce American Heritage Girl merchandise in our Scout Shop beginning in July.  We will be carrying uniforming, handbooks, and a few extras in the Scout Shop.  Please stop by to see the new addition!
