GR!DC Board of Directors
The board consists of five great folks that are super devoted to Girls Rock! DC and come with skills and experience that help build capacity, but most essentially, reflect our youth and their potential.
Girls Rock! DC’s Youth Leaders
At GR!DC we do all we can to make sure youth voices are heard, and for that, they need to be amplified.
Our Youth Leaders are a group of 5-10 teens that meet to strengthen their communication and leadership skills and make GR!DC more youth-driven. The program aims to give young folks a louder voice in deciding GR!DC’s priorities, direction, and major organizational decisions.
YOUTH LEADERS ARE:
- 14-18 years old by the first meeting of their cohort;
- former participants in at least one previous Girls Rock program (this includes Girls Rock! DC Summer Camp, Youth Leaders, After-School Program, or a Girls Rock program in a different city);
- passionate about creating change in their community!
Youth Leaders commit to working with Girls Rock! DC for minimum six months (upcoming term: May 2021-November 2021). They can serve multiple terms, there is no limit. They will spend 4-8 hours per month on Youth Leader responsibilities. Youth Leaders will be compensated for their hard work with a stipend.
Youth Leaders meet by zoom one or two times per month for about two hours each with other Girls Rock! DC adult leaders to plan Girls Rock! DC programs, usually on a weekday evening or weekend afternoon. Youth Leaders help with outreach and advertising for Girls Rock! DC. Youth Leaders also have the opportunity to design and lead workshops and other activities throughout the year.
Apply for the upcoming Youth Leader term here! Applications close April 30, 2021.
GR!DC Co-Executive Directors
Co-Executive Directors form the core of our paid staff! These positions are year-round and part-time. First, these folks will spearhead the transition of GR!DC from an all-volunteer leadership structure to a paid staffing model. They also develop the strategic plan to support the overall functioning and longevity of GR!DC and manage the daily duties and tasks of GR!DC staff and volunteers.

DC does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national and/or ethnic origin, marital status, sexual orientation, body type, physical ability, gender expression, or other individual identities in the administration of any of its educational programs, admissions policies, scholarships, and other Camp-related policies and programs, as well as volunteer policies and activities. All Camp activities will promote and maintain the personal and emotional safety of all campers and staff. We do not tolerate racism, homophobia, sexism, or other discriminatory behavior or expression.
