We envision a Utah where women and men have equal opportunity. This starts by helping Utah women develop the tools and skills they need to find their version of success.The Grit Girl Group strives to inspire, prepare, and encourage Utah women to step into leadership roles through education, mentorship, and connection.
Grit Girl Values
We offer multiple programs that cater to different age demographics. Each program will help girls and women build grit and take on leadership.
We offer various free downloadable resources, a monthly newsletter, inspiring blog posts, and we are working on compiling and creating a Utah Women's Resource Guide.
We believe in women supporting women and want to include as many women as possible in our cause. You can help support a Grit Girl by volunteering at our events, attending our fundraisers, or submitting an inspiring woman leader spotlight.
It is our top priority to run quality programs that are accessible to Utah women of every social, cultural, and economic status. Your donations help us make that possible. Over 90% of every donation goes directly toward supporting a Grit Girl.
Girls ages 5-11 are welcome to participate in our Princess Program. Girls will meet every Thursday from June to August. Each class is themed after a different princess or fairytale character and teaches the girls leadership characteristics that they can begin to practice in their day to day life.
For women of all ages, we host quarterly get-togethers lead by a variety of panelists. Each event has a theme. During these one-night events, attendees hear and learn from prominent Utah women who are experts in their subjects. These events are a great way to connect with other organizations and professionals and to get career advice from other women.
We love coming out to schools, church groups, girl scout troops, and the like to talk about building grit and developing leadership skills. We also love talking to boys and girls about how diverse leadership benefits organizations and society as a whole.

We have a social media series that features local women leaders and Utah women resources. There are over 170 women's groups in Utah and we want to help ensure those programs and tools are being utilized. We also want to feature good role models so that our Grit Girls have a plethora of women they can look up to!
We love featuring girls and women who have exhibited extraordinary grit and leadership. We all know someone who has been a great leader, role model, or mentor in our lives; submit them to be featured during one of our future Grit Girl spotlights!
We host a variety of different fundraising events throughout the year, announced on our social media pages and in our newsletters. We invite you to keep in touch so you can participate in these fun events!

We are compiling all of the programs, scholarships, aide, organizations, clubs, and support groups dedicated to elevating women in the state of Utah. Once completed, this guide will enable women to "shop" hundreds of Utah women's assistance programs.
