American Heritage Girls


American Heritage Girls (AHG) is the premier national character development organization for young women that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement. 

  • AHG’s mission is “building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.”  
  • Troop AL-1128 was established at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church (Birmingham, AL) in June 2017. OLV’s AHG Troop AL-1128 offers girls opportunities to grow in their Catholic faith while learning new skills, serving others, enjoying the outdoors, and having fun with their friends.  
  • The Troop holds meetings once a month on Sunday afternoons, and offers at least one additional troop activity per month.  
  • Troop AL-1128 currently serves 29 girls, aged 5-14, from 23 families. 
  • We are prepared to serve girls up to age 18, and with the continued support and prayers of the OLV community, we hope to expand our membership and program to build up even more young Catholic women of faith, strength, and character to be leaders in our parish and community. 
  • Adult volunteer positions are available for both men and women.
