As SFLA’s High School and Homeschool program continues to grow, we have had more opportunities to partner with great organizations in an effort to train and equip the pro-life generation. This past week, Missy Martinez, our National High School Program Coordinator, along with some of our summer interns, attended the American Heritage Girls Leadership Conference as part of our growing relationship with American Heritage Girls. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
American Heritage Girls (AHG), a religious alternative to the Girl Scouts, is an organization dedicated to “building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.” Like the Girl Scouts, AHG offers badges and patches to reward troops for service projects, leadership skills, and outdoor experiences. The program creates opportunities for young women to develop into strong, value-based leaders who are prepared to make a difference in their world.
As part of their badge and patch system, AHG has a “Respect Life” patch that can be earned by Troops participating in activities that promote the sanctity of life. This can include volunteering at the local Pregnancy Resource Center or spending time with the elderly. SFLA is helping facilitate this program by giving AHG troops ideas and opportunities to earn their “Respect Life” patch with our national pro-life network.
Not only are we providing opportunities to serve, SFLA is offering a special apologetics training for Patriot Units, AHG’s High School aged troops. The training will teach the Troops skills to dialogue about abortion and other topics of controversial nature, in a way that is loving, kind, and representative of the pro-life values.
At the National AHG Leadership Conference, leaders were excited to hear of SFLA’s role in training and equipping Patriot Units to join in the pro-life cause. We look forward to working with these incredible young women and seeing how they will impact their communities!
