Voices of the West

Voices of the West Program on location in Blanding, Utah

Elevating the voices and ideas of young people in their communities

Voices of the West

In partnership with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Spy Hop is able to bring the Voices of the West, Stories from Utah Youth Program to three rural regions of Utah – San Juan County, Tooele County, and the Uinta Basin. Through afterschool workshops and paid summer media intensives, this program provides a unique opportunity for Spy Hop mentors to offer week-long programming that aims to elevate the voices and ideas of young people while also celebrating what makes their communities unique.
