"I recommend American Heritage Girls enthusiastically to parents who want their daughters involved in a traditional, Christian-based program that will reinforce what they are trying to teach at home."

– Dr. James Dobson, Founder, Focus on the Family

“I’m convinced that AHG is a genuine building block in recapturing the American character... Each Troop provides a safe environment in which girls can develop their skills, learn how to serve in their community, and that’s where girls learn how to work as a team, how to build good relationships, and to grow strong spiritually as they’re taught Biblical principles from the word of God. And it’s those Biblical principles which ultimately build the character that is so necessary in the life of a young woman.”

– Joni Eareckson-Tada, Author, Speaker, and Founder of Joni and Friends

“They do address all the ethnic communities knowing that there’s only one human race. And so any little girl, no matter what her background happens to be, can find the delight of girlhood while she’s learning character traits that she’s going to need. That’s very encouraging to me.”

– Dr. Alveda C. King, Director, African-American Outreach

"I love that American Heritage Girls is teaching girls to serve. Serving God, serving family, serving community, serving our country… teaching these girls not to be 'me'-focused but to be others-focused and to get out there and to serve the community, and that’s going to have a tremendous long-term impact for decades and decades."

– Dannah Gresh, Author, Speaker, and Founder of Pure Freedom and Secret Keeper Girl

“American Heritage Girls is saying ‘let’s build the foundation together,’ and in building a solid foundation, even if somebody drifts away later in life, they have got a greater chance and a greater hope of coming back because that foundation is already in place”.

– Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life

 “American Heritage Girls has been open and transparent about its proud commitment to foundational Christian principles of morality and virtue.”

– Bill Bowdle, Senior Pastor, Bethel United Methodist Church

“I believe that American Heritage Girls is superior to other programs like it… it just serves in the church and fits perfectly – has not been a challenge at all for us, we’re glad to have American Heritage Girls.”

– Bob Mahaffey, Pastor, West Chester Church of the Nazarene

"I think AHG has really made me the leader that I am, the more outspoken person that I am… through school, they don’t teach that kind of stuff necessarily."

– Nikki, Patriot, Stars & Stripes Recipient
