Ages 14-18 and in grades 9-12
The Patriot is the highest program level in AHG. These girls plan and carry out activities with Unit Leaders who function as “facilitators”, allowing girls to make decisions on a regular basis.
As with lower levels, they too earn Achievement Badges, Service Stars and activity patches. Since the girls are older, they are required to demonstrate the highest level of skill in all areas.
The level award for the Patriots is the Dolley Madison Award.
Patriot level girls may go above and beyond to earn the highest award of the American Heritage Girls, The Stars and Stripes Award
. This is the most prestigious of awards, and requires a great deal of time, sacrifice and devotion to achieve this award.
