GURLS Program: Participant Application
Please complete the following application to become a Year 1 participant in our free of cost Girls Ultimate Revolution Leadership Series (GURLS) Program. We will be selecting 10 female and female-identifying individuals who are freshmen, sophomores, and juniors (9th-11th grade high school students) to participate in our Year 1 Program, which runs from August - November. Our focus is on selecting a diverse group of contributors. Participants who successfully complete their first year will continue in GURLS until they graduate high school (all subsequent program years are free of cost as well).

We highly encourage everyone to apply, and experience in Ultimate is not required! This is a FREE leadership program designed with YOU in mind -- for those who are interested in gaining valuable experience in leadership development, coaching strategies, program development, and conflict resolution in a safe, fun, and supportive environment. We give you the skills, tools, and resources needed to pursue leadership in a multitude of situations.

We will be selecting individuals based on the following factors: availability, volunteerism, leadership experience, recommendation, and the quality of essay response. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Please note that all answers are confidential, and will only be shared with the GURLS Selection Committee. You will receive a copy of your answers in an email, once you have submitted your application. You will also be able to edit your response after you submit.

For your essay, please answer the following questions: What is the biggest issue/problem you are facing as a female/female-identifying athlete? What is one way you think we (as a community) could help solve this problem?

*We highly recommend writing and editing your essay in another platform (Word, Pages, Google Docs etc.) and copying the final product into this application.

Your recommendation must come from a non-family member. Examples include: a teacher, coach, supervisor, volunteer coordinator, etc. Please make sure that recommenders complete their recommendation, using this survey:
