GURLS Program Application
IMPORTANT NOTE: Our 2020 GURLS Program will run no matter what. Whether we meet online or in-person, our program will continue this year.

Please complete the following application to enroll in our tuition-free Girls Ultimate Revolution Leadership Series (GURLS) Program. We will be selecting individuals who are in any year of high school to participate in our leadership program, which will run from September - November. Our focus is on selecting a diverse group of contributors. Participants who successfully complete their first year are welcome to build on their skills and continue each year until they graduate high school (all subsequent program years are tuition-free as well).

We highly encourage any femxle athlete from any sport to apply! This is a tuition-free leadership program designed with girlx 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 different roles (both on and off the field/court).

*To ensure that our community is inclusive and equitable, we are intentionally using an “x” in femxle, womxn and girlx to include cis, trans, non-binary, gender non-conforming, gender queer and any female-identified individuals.

Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted. 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.
