The girl handbook is a valuable tool to understanding the American Heritage Girls' program. The handbook will serve you through many years in AHG. The manual contains details on: earning badges, completing program levels, and service projects.

We just got new handbooks and there a revised requirements for several of the badges!!! This is really going to put a kink in our planning and badge tracking. It's also going to cause a snowball effect with things like TroopTrack. I thought all updates would be in the supplemental handbook. It sure would be nice to break these books down into Units and make the books lest costly than have to buy one big book. I can see how it was a good idea at first but they're just to big now and the updates make things confusing across multiple Units. Please consider making this change. We LOVE AHG and want to make it the best program out there!

This book is fantastic! I only have to buy one book and it lasts from age 6 to 18. For each patch that you want to work on it has all that the girls need to cover to earn it. Vests for Tenderhearts and Explorers and sashes for the Pioneers & Patriots) of the different levels mark what is needed to earn the badge, so their is no confusion. Books are very colorful and have both easier as well as more difficult activities. Also in a nice spiral book! My girls are excited about this program and love looking at what badge they want to work on. It helps us to do more hands on activities for our homeschool.

The AHG Handbook, while quite large provides lists of requirements for each badge! It is amazing having this all in one place and not have to have all sorts of badge books. There are lots of resources on AHG connect that they can use for more information!
