American Heritage Girls, a faith-based character development program for school-age girls, will hold a registration and open house from noon-2p.m. Sunday and an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Monday at Fellowship United Methodist Church, 2511 New Salem Hwy., in Murfreesboro.
Organizers of the meeting say AHG is for families with daughters who are seeking a scout-type experience. Families new to AHG are encouraged to attend the Monday night meeting.
Founded in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio, AHG has grown from 10 troops and 100 members to more than 22,000 members across four countries and in 48 U.S. states.
With an emphasis on faith, service and fun, girls choose from more than 240 badges, and participate in service projects, leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences. Troops are led by adult volunteers who facilitate the AHG program while encouraging girl leadership. Faith-based organizations like churches, schools and civic organizations charter AHG to help achieve ministry goals for youth.
AHG received an endorsement from Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, child psychologist and author.
