There are five Program Levels in American Heritage Girls. Troops may offer all five Levels, if there are girls and Leaders available for each. However, it is common for new Troops to begin with only a few Levels.

AHG’s multi-Level structure means that girls from all Program Levels meet together as a single Troop at the same time, though they may split into Levels for certain activities.

Pathfinder – Ages 5-6
The Pathfinder Level is intended to give a girl a chance to try out the AHG Program and learn more about it. A Pathfinder girl earns necklace beads for attendance, participation and Bible verse memorization while learning the four parts of the AHG Oath. She may earn the Fanny Crosby Award upon completion of this Level.

She may earn the Sacagawea Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Blue Service Stars are awarded for every 5 hours of community service.
