Troop VA1148 is a volunteer run organization. Providing quality programming for girl members requires a commitment from all families involved. To meet and maintain American Heritage Girls required Leader-to-Girl ratios and to be able to offer a robust and varied program, we require one parent from each family to register as an adult volunteer.
We ask each family to contribute to the operation of the troop in a way that is meaningful and appropriate for their family situation. Please review our Troop VA1148 Volunteer Positions document and prayerfully consider how to help support the troop.
IMPORTANT: Volunteers must be cleared by and compliant with both AHG and the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.
We expect families to participate in the troop’s fundraising activities. Proceeds from fundraising support troop operations, which includes fun events like camping.
