What are the details?

The Foundations of Government program is designed to empower high school girls to learn about local, state, and federal systems of government and grow their civic skills. Girls Lobby has partnered with the Utah Refugee Services Center (DWS) to provide this class catered to understanding the structure of government and why youth voices matter. 

Earlier this year, Girls Lobby's refugee class was featured on an episode of PBS Utah's "More Than Half" podcast. You can listen below and check out more of PBS Utah's podcasts here

Who can participate?

High school girls and gender non-conforming leaders are divided into issue-based cohorts. A cohort consists of ten girls and two trained, college-aged woman facilitators.

When do cohorts meet?

Cohorts meet once a week during the legislative session, from January to March. COVID-19 restrictions permitting, Girls Lobby hosts an opening and closing social at the Capitol. 

Where are meetings held?

Cohorts meet in person at the Utah Refugee Services Center and new this year, virtually on Zoom.
