The American Heritage Girls was founded in 1995 by Patti Garibay and other parents from West Chester, Ohio to form a Christian alternative to the Girl Scouts of the USA after the Girl Scouts allowed individual scouts and scouters to use wording appropriate to their own beliefs for the word "God" in the promise and supposedly banned prayer at meetings.In June 2009, the AHG formed a partnership with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).The Memorandum of Mutual Support recognizes the common values and goals of both organizations and formally established a relationship, as AHG had been working with the BSA on projects and utilized BSA camps The American Heritage Girls program is divided into several levels based primarily on age.

The American Heritage Girl program emphasizes life skill enhancement, developing teamwork & building confidence, social development, girl leadership, character development, and spiritual development.

AHG ascribes to progressive programing, where everything a girl does will be appropriate for her age and ability.

As a girl moves through the program, requirements for badges and other achievements will become more challenging.
