National Day of Service
AHG’s National Day of Service began in 2012 and is held annually on the third Saturday in September. This day is set aside for Troops across the country to join together in living out the AHG Oath in their communities. The date was selected to fall around the time of AHG’s birthday and can serve as a celebration as a Troop gives the gift of service to its community.
Troops are encouraged to plan an event for National Day of Service which will allow them to serve their communities, Charter Organizations, and churches. As Troop volunteers create their programming calendars for each Program Year, they are encouraged to pray with their AHG Troop Board, Charter Organization, and the girls to decide who their Troop can serve and how to make an impact.
