AMERICAN HERITAGE GIRLS BELIEVES
We're experiencing what social scientists call a "Loneliness Epidemic", despite being more connected than ever before.
Researchers estimate that prolonged feelings of loneliness can actually shorten a person's life by 15 years, making isolation as equally impactful as smoking 15 cigarettes per day.
Prolonged social isolation and feelings of exclusion are causing increases in stress, anxiety, and sadness for both adults and our girls. So what's the cure?
God made us to be in community with one another— but not just any community, authentic community. American Heritage Girls (AHG) encourages you to invite others to join this community, a place where girls thrive because Christ is at the center of everything we do.
AHG is a space for all biological girls of any color, race, national origin, and socioeconomic status who agree to live according to the standards of the AHG Oath and the AHG Creed are invited to be members of American Heritage Girls.
As an AHG family, you know the joy, connection, and growth that comes with joining a Troop. But how do you share that excitement with other families in your community?
AHG is excited to launch BELONG, a Membership Drive initiative. AHG knows recruitment can feel daunting. That's why AHG has launched a series of resources and incentives to equip girls and parents to spread the word about AHG in their communities.
