Williams-Grand Canyon News

WILLIAMS, Ariz. - A character-development program for girls called American Heritage Girls (AHG) is coming to Williams. To learn more about AHG, Community United Methodist Church is hosting an information meeting at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18 at the church, 127 W. Sherman Ave.

AHG was founded in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio to offer a leadership and character development program for girls. AHG has grown from 10 troops and 100 members to more than 13,000 members spanning 41 states and four countries. The organization is emphasizes service with more than 100,000 hours in community service last year alone.

In June 2009, AHG and the century old Boy Scouts of America (BSA) signed a Memorandum of Mutual Support, naming AHG as the first all-girls' organization to enjoy this honor.

"AHG is structured much like the BSA and its program is also owned by its

Charter Organizations, making the two organizations perfect bookend programs to one another," said AHG founder and executive director, Patti Garibay.

The mission of AHG 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.

AHG Troops meet together to grow in their faith, practice leadership, experience teamwork, build friendships and strengthen character. Badge work and outdoor activities are enjoyed within age appropriate groups. These Troops are led by dedicated adult volunteers who facilitate the AHG program while recognizing girls' valuable input.

Each AHG Troop reflects the "personality" of their troop leadership and Charter

Organization. Churches and private schools charter AHG to achieve their ministry goals for youth.
