GET INVOLVED!

Girls Rock! DC is a supportive, inclusive, and creative space for girls and non-binary and trans youth of varying racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, abilities, identities, and experiences to develop their self-confidence, build community, rise up, and rock out! We live at the intersection of art, activism, and music education. We host summer camps, workshops, after school programs, and more!

Update March 16, 2020:

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Girls Rock! DC team will be working virtually until April 30, 2020. All in-person events and programs will be suspended during this time.

We are moving forward with plans for our youth Summer Camp in July 2020, and recognize that these plans can change based on the severity and spread of the pandemic. Our top concern is for the well-being of our Girls Rock! DC family — we’ll be adapting our programming as needed and communicating with you along the way. We’re in this together.

We know that this crisis is particularly disruptive for the young folks and their families that participate in our programs, and the teaching artists, musicians, and care workers that make our programs possible. What would a supportive, inclusive, and creative space look like to you right now? How can we continue to build community, rise up, and rock out together? We want your ideas!

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.

Support Awesomeness!

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.

Discover your rockin’ self!

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!

Rock out with us!
