Faith-based alternative to Girl Scouts focuses on character building

See also

A little girl selling Girl Scout cookies was once a symbol of an organization trusted by parents. That became tarnished as the focus changed and now provides an environment that is said to be in conflict with the morality it once promoted.

One alternative for parents that once looked to the Girl Scouts for their daughters is American Heritage Girls (AHG) a faith-based and character building organization that teaches service to God, family, community and country.

Girl Scouts and the Women’s Rights Agenda

In an article that appeared in Grandfather Politics on February 1, 2014 Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International maintains that she has seen the contents of a 20-page brochure titled Happy, Healthy and Hot that contained sexually explicit information that told girls that

….any form of sexual activity they desire in is permissible and that if a girl knows she has HIV, it is up too her discretion on whether or not she wants to tell a potential sexual partner of her illness or not.

Janice Shaw Crouse of Concerned Women for America stated

The Girl Scouts formerly embraced the Judeo-Christian values that Americans once grew up with….Now Girl Scouts are more focused on indoctrinating girls on the so-called women’s right agenda….which focuses on self-discovery and protection rather than sexual abstinence.

Supporters of the boycott believe the Girl Scouts became involved with the World Association of Girl Guides that in 2010 at a World Youth Conference asked for what it labeled “comprehensive sexuality education” that included giving women access to contraceptives and safe abortion.

American Heritage Girls Program

American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered organization for girls 5 to 18 that offers badge programs, service projects, girl leadership opportunities, and outdoor experiences to its members. It serves as a catalyst for building young women of integrity and faith. It also broadens girls’ social development through extra-curricular activities.
