Girls Rock! DC works at the intersection of art and activism, providing music programs for young people to learn, grow, and use the power of their communities.
We foster a supportive, inclusive, and equitable space that centers girls and non-binary youth, especially Black and Brown youth. Girls Rock! DC bolsters leadership, self-expression, and a passion for social change through creative collaboration and community power-building. We host summer camps, workshops, after school programs, and more!
We rock by donation!
Your support goes directly towards to creating a safer space for youth to develop their self-confidence, rise up, and rock out! We welcome both individual donations and organization sponsorships — every little bit helps our campers reach their full potential.
Camp and other programming rocks!
GR!DC offers the opportunity to express yourself through music, conversation, and through your interactions with others. This is a space created especially for you to discover your many layers and express yourself while surrounded by love and support!
We offer programs for youth, adults, and the community. At Youth and Adult Camp, we offer small-group instrument instruction based on skill level (electric guitar, electric bass, drum kit, keyboard, DJ/turntables, vocals). Campers form bands or DJ crews, are coached by musical mentors, and collaborate to write and perform an original song or DJ set. We also offer an after school program and community instrument share.

Volunteers Help Us Rock!
We appreciate the continued support and love from our volunteers! Please join us in making the GR!DC community stronger by sharing your talents and resources. GR!DC has roles for all skill levels and time availability regardless of sex and gender identity. Many roles need to be filled prior to camp, during Camp Week, and all year long. Some roles require specific musical experience but many volunteer positions are open to those without music or instrumental ability. All of them are fun!
